Main part of our house is on the main level. The lower level contains the rumpus room and the two-way bathroom which was designed with our future pool in mind.
You can see from the site contours that our block (aka "the cliff") has a massive 9 metre fall from the front to the back of the block and an almost 6 metre fall from the front of the garage to the rear of the house. This has allowed us to build a double story at the rear with nice 3 metre ceilings downstairs. Downstairs is Mr Royal's area. He calls this his Mancave.

We are desperately hoping to receive all the working drawings by Christmas so we can commence finalising all the plans and hopefully commence building in early 2013.
