Feature walls are going to be more of a long term project, as to not rake up more costs at this early stage. Stacey seems to think that she'll be able to stand up and use the blue masking tape stuff, and with a roller on a pole hopefully we will be right when the time comes. We might have to enlist the help of some upright person we know!

Here is a new view as of 18th January this year.
You can see that construction has started in stage 4 (Alfa Drive), and now that registration has occurred in our stage 5, you would imagine that we will see some action soon on our street. Bring on tender letter 2!!! Baby steps.... baby steps....

Anyhow the Swedes have designed this extendable table that Stacey found. It can be setup in three configurations, but I think considering that the ends will be a perfect space for Stace and I to sit in our chairs, it will probably live in its longest form.
The Eames chairs will look great along side of it. This is the Oak colour, and I have a feeling that this is going to be closer in colour to the Eames legs than the lighter birch colour also available.

The next thought was Kava (first column, second row), with Ironstone gutters and Shale Grey facia, but again, the difference between website and sample is huge. The sample appears much more blue.
We don't like the browns or reds, so I think I need to make some calls and see of a darker tile will in fact incur extra charges and if so, how much. A job for today! And hopefully the guy who made Stacey's ring calls today and swings by to organise her resize!!

We told the kids today that we are building a house to live in and took them for a drive down to the block straight from school. Eb gets pretty nervous about change and we were wondering how long it would take her to work out that she was going to have to change schools. We were still out the front of the school and literally 20 seconds out of the gate! She's got plenty of time to get use to the idea yet, so hopefully she gets herself to a better head space before then, and that she doesn't have any other influences making her even more upset. <insert rolling eyes emoticon here>
The kids had a good run around the block and it appears from a distance that Khai is 5 retaining wall blocks tall out of the 7, making 5 blocks about 106cm (6cm of growth between ages 4 and 5 - and boy he needs it, with the 'Duck's Disease' and all he got from his mother!).
Kids Positives - McDonalds very close by, Dreamworld very close by (plus Uncle Nick considering an annual pass to take them!), Adam and Buddy around all the time, choosing room colours (not sure how much choosing they will be doing! Khai especially - "Dark blue and red")
Kids Negatives - Nervous about a new school (Khai seems fine with this though), 3 months is too long to build a house! (Maybe I should let Ebony negotiate the contract!)
