Share our trials and tribulations as we build our new home - a custom Dominico by Fairmont Homes NSW

Wednesday, August 24, 2011


I wasn't able to upload pictures this afternoon and they are the best part of blogging! So, here are a few taken last weekend at Fairmont's display home Dominico, which our home is loosely based on.

Current plans for the colour scheme are wooden floors in the entry, hall, kitchen and meals with light carpet for the rest of the living areas, cream walls and some bold feature colours. The kitchen will (at this stage) have white laminate cupboards, white stone bench tops and a black glass splashback with Smeg appliances.

Our future Kitchen and meals area!

The view from our future TV Room to our Master Bedroom (though technically this is from their Master Bedroom to Bed 2):

Our Balcony...though ours will be 250mm bigger, but who's counting?

Our bath will have a fixed window from the top of the bath to the ceiling:

Our balcony...again!

Our facade will be similar to this except; the balcony will be across the garage and be roofed, there will be a sliding door from Bed 1 to the balcony with a fixed window on the other side, there will be matching big windows in the Living and TV Rooms (opposite side to garage) and the whole upstairs will be clad, the bricks will be lighter and the whole thing will be mirror-reversed...hmmmm...maybe our facade is not so similar to this after all...

Another shot of our Kitchen:

The feature recess in the hallway (where Mick and I will hang Mick's bday present, a beautiful piece of wood with a clock, thermometer and barometer set in it):

This one's for Mick, a picture (which he took) of our future a/c unit:

Now, some photos from the block on the weekend. I'm hoping that we can keep/transplant the trees with the white blossoms and the Red Hot Pokers. If they can thrive (beautifully) in their current conditions, then they deserve to stay:
