    Iceman, that's come on some. The grey brick wall running into the house is that a heat sink, i have seen similar on other builds where their mass is used to stablise ambient temperature; help keep the place cool summer and warmer in winter.

    Cheers NPT - That is a brick pier (Known as a blade wall in OZ) it was built only for ascetic purposes to allow us to place a Blue basalt finishing stone will be fitted in the next few weeks. The wall runs through into the hallway which will be a feature as well with the stonework fitted.

    Looking good! I'm a fan of that boxy / modular looking style.

    looking forward to the end result,

    how much does it cost per sqm to build such a house over there? could it be cheaper than Thailand for the same quality of work?

    Prices vary per sqm in Australia. This build will cost me A$2,500 per sqm but the landscaping plus extras I have requested will bump it up.

    Much more expensive than Thailand, but I can assure you the standards are much higher.
