home sweet home

not long now until the block of land we are buying settles and it is officially all ours! two weeks to be exact.  but even more exciting is that this means that our first home will be being built in the very very near future.  not even two months ago we were just starting toy with the idea of actually taking the plunge and buying a established house, now we are literately about a month off starting to watch our home be built. it all seemed to happen in a whirlwind when husbandito came home for a month brake, we thought we would start by having chat with an aussie home loans broker, which lead to us applying for a pre approval , that meant we could start having a look around, which turned into making a few phones calls. then all of a sudden on a thursday afternoon we were meeting with a lady from  a big building company, and by saturday morning we were signing on with them and signing our paper work for our very own 950sq meters of australia. it all happened so very fast, but it also so easily, and smooth that it all just felt so right!. 

last week we spent the day at 'gallery' picking out all the colours for tiles, carpet, benches, bricks, and more. it was the first step in actually feeling like we are making a home for our family. as much fun as it was it was also so draining, we were being asked hundreds of questions about what we wanted, and a lot of the time we had no idea that we had to even think about what shape we wanted this, and what colour we wanted that. I had only really thought about my new kitchen in detail, and hadn't really given things like the mortar or whether i cared if you could see the pipe from the toilet a thought.  I guess we are a very lucky couple though and have almost identical tastes in colours, because the colour selection was a breeze, everything i liked so did husbandito, and vice verser. I really didn't have an opinion about the bricks and colour bond roof colours, and i knew husbandito had thought more about it so i just let him pick our outside colours, what a good wife i am. our electrical consult was also easy, but probably the most expensive part of the day, it amazing how they know that you will need power points in a certain part of the house so they don't put them in as standard so you have to put extras in which cost you an arm and a leg, but on well, what are you going to do??
i was actually very surprised that the hardest decision we had to make on the day was whether  we wanted to have a round basin and bath in the bathroom or a square one...yep the tough life decisions!    

some of the colours we chose for our new home
So now i've loaded myself up with house magazines and started planning the decorating side of things.  I'm an absolute lover of having vision boards so i'm dying to get the scissors out and start cutting and pasting all these beautiful pictures i am finding! fun and i'm sure frustrating times are ahead!!!
