Our final drawings are in!!

10 months, 2 weeks and 6 days after putting down our $750 deposit at Eden Brae we have our final drawings!!! For those just tuning in, it took that long for our land to register and shouldn't be confused with Eden Brae's usual turnaround times!

So exciting to see the final drawings with everything exactly as we have been planning. And without further ado, here they are....

Just casting your memory back, we have converted the original Parent's Retreat and Office into self-contained accommodation.  So the self-contained area is labelled "Rumpus" & "Bedroom 5".  The ensuite off the rumpus has provisions for a washing machine & dryer (notice the nib wall next to the toilet?) and the space backing onto the shower is a fridge space.  After handover, a kitchenette will go in the corner near the spot for the fridge.  At the front of the Rumpus are French Doors which will open onto a deck and this will be the main entrance into the unit.

Bedroom 1 will be the new Master Bedroom and we have converted the media room from the middle of the house into our ensuite, walk in robe and a study nook that faces the living area.  The funny little alcove next to the study nook is for a built in wine rack feature.

Other main changes made to our plans is the kitchen where we've made it an island bench so as to maximise the back of kitchen space and have put pot drawers in there.  We also have some nifty storage cupboards in the island that open into the Family Room.

We also added on Bedroom 4 which will be a playroom / guest room and has french doors that will open onto a small deck.

Loads of other little changes have been made here and there and below is a standard Saville 27 floor plan, so you can really see the changes made.  In short, the only 2 areas not changed is the Linen Cupboard and Alfresco!


We are so thrilled with how it's all come together and feel that we'll be utilising every spare inch of space available.

Wow I love what you have done! It really feels like you have maximised every bit of space and got so much more into the floor plan!

Hi Karla, I followed you over from the H1 forum (I'm MissyP over there). Love your blog - it's really all about decorating isn't it? Just like a new home! The plan looks great, quite a way off from the original Sav27. You can still see its bones, but you have certainly put your own mark on it. It's obviously no longer 27sq either... Surely not? What size now? I look forward to watching your process.

Thank you ladies. Penny, the house is now 30.7sq! Will have to go and check your build out on H1.
