Once the working drawings, specification and contract is finalised our clients meet with our Atelier Design Experts to choose the colours and finishes for their new home. Atelier has everything for our clients to choose from on display including our standard inclusions and upgrades, all under the one roof. During this appointment you’ll have exclusive use of Atelier so you can take your time, discuss your options and make sure you’re 100% happy with your selections! We even shout you lunch!

With every new home build there are certain stages some clients find the most exciting and some which are more challenging. This week we’re talking to Giverny & Sam about theirs.

What’s been the most exciting part about building so far?

We would definitely have to say Atelier! The design showroom. The day we went in and chose all our tiles, carpet, paint, fixtures etc. Bec, one of the designers who helped us out in the day was absolutely amazing! She knows her stuff! It was so exciting seeing our vision come together and we can’t wait to see it go into the house. Also, surprisingly once we saw the frame go up and could actually see the house layout and walk through I couldn’t stop jumping with excitement! It’s so surreal to think it’s OUR OWN HOME! 

What’s been the hardest part about building so far?

The hardest part about building so far is hoping that everything we chose at Atelier works and comes together and looks beautiful at the end. Your always waking up at 2am in the morning second guessing your decisions on the colour of your tile or did you choose the right wall paint. But at the end of the day we had to keep reminding ourselves that this is our first home, we don’t need a million dollar house and all the bells and whistles, we had a budget to stick to and the house we are getting for what our budget was is going to be definitely not your average home. We are so lucky to have not made many upgrades at all but still walk away with a stunning house that we can call ours! It is hard not to get carried away and over stretching yourself with cost’s and upgrades but in our case sticking in budget and getting what we wanted were basically the same thing!
