We Have Been Framed!

Upon visiting the block this weekend we discovered that we have frames! 

The ground floor is not yet complete but it’s great to see the rooms start to come to life.

View out our front door (though we will have obscured glass)

View from the front of the house through to our backyard

Looking out through our formal living room window. We hope to improve the view  with a Japanese Maple...and less metal beams!
Looking through the open doorway to our formal living area. I love our two huge windows!

 We’re not without our issues however. The windows in the Media Room are too low, especially when you add in the raised floor at the rear of the room. Our lounges will cover them!

Our Media Room with it's woefully low windows

We’re also unsure of the pipes in the Powder Room…There are four, and we’re not sure any of them are in the right spot for the vanity:

So, Monday morning will see some emails/call to Fairmont to see if we can sort things before they become a bigger issue.


  1. Looking fantastic guys! It's so much fun to be able to do a proper walk through and get an idea of where things are in real life. Argh, did you just squeel when you saw it?! It's almost more exciting when you are driving up, not expecting to see so much progress, then BAM, frames! Hope the issues can be sorted out quickly and without any grief.

    1. I know what you mean! It's more exciting if you don't expect progress and then BAM! We're a little worried about the windows in the Media Room, but overall we are very happy. I still can't believe that we're even finally at this stage after MONTHS of planning and waiting. Yippee!

  2. Looking good...cant wait to see more... Did you get the plumbing window issue resolved?

    1. Still no word from Fairmont on this issue :( But I'm still excited by the progress!
