Selections Signed Off!

Well last week was a whirlwind!  We received our quote for the selections and surprisingly once we added it all up we where only a very small amount over budget and after talking to the bank we realised that it wouldn't make any difference to our repayments over the course of the loan so after we made a few changes we signed off! 

The only change we actually made was to the doors to the master bedroom, we originally had chosen these doors with the Charcoal Stain and frosted glass, these original doors are around $900 each and we've kept these for the linen cupboard and also the cavity slider into the study ...

But after some discussion and our main concern being the soundproofing and privacy we decided to change to these ones in the same Charcoal stain, these doors with a painted finish where $260 for two (as we have a double door to the master bedroom) but with the change to wood and stain finish where $700 for two ...

The doors where one of the most expensive things in our selections pricing the other things that added to the price where the stone end panel for the kitchen island bench which was $1,180. The frameless shower screens with the door where also a bit more than expected coming in at $2,051 each.
All our other upgrades where small amounts here and there so overall we where very happy with how everything totalled to. 
We've made an appointment for the 30th Oct to do our final sign offs and we recieved word last week that the draftsmen had a break in their schedule so where starting work on our plans for the final contract sooner than expected.
Also our neighbours rubbish has been removed, but I think that was more due to them wanting to make space for the timber framing rather than my email!
