> How did your bud­get fore­cast com­pare to your ac­tual spend? We

went 10 per­cent over bud­get.

> What ar­eas of your home did you

save on? Felic­ity: Our ranch slider; by opt­ing for a dou­ble stacker, as op­posed to a triple, we saved around $6000. We pulled in the ex­ter­nal lounge wall by about 30cm, which meant we didn’t need to fire rate the wall, thereby sav­ing us about $8000-$10,000.

> Any splurges? The fire­place, the sky­lights in the deck roof and the land­scap­ing – all worth it!

> Did you tend to buy high-end home­ware or seek out a bar­gain?

Mid to high end.

> How did you keep track of costs?

With a very thor­ough spread­sheet de­signed by Si­mon!
