    I've only got 1 or 2 months left of renovating the last IP project, and I'm starting to get excited about getting stuck back into my PPOR project.

    I'm trying to make this place ridiculous. So any stupidly over the top luxury ideas, post em up! :D

    Here is the project so far: http://somersoft.com/forums/showthread.php?t=92426

    $550 000 spent so far including purchase.

    Valued by bank at $625 000 in it's current unfinished state.

    Rest of the project should cost about $80 000 and take 12 months.

    Brings total cost to $630 000. No idea what it will be worth once completed.

    Will be 400m2 of internal living and 125m2 of deck area, plus 20m2 bali hut and 25m2 garage. So that's 570m2 total.

    6 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, 2 kitchens, 1 bar, 1 dinning, 1 sitting room, 1 entrance room, 1 games room/ lounge room, & 1 theatre room.

    Currently only built 250m2 of the property so far. So still lots more to do.

    Here are the plans for the rest of the house (front half already built) and for the yard. Some of the yard is already done with the fruit trees, etc...

    In the pic you'll see two properties outlined in red, and the section I use as my PPOR outlined in orange. The next door property is one of my IP's. It's such a large property that I've stolen their backyard for myself mwahahaha.

    What do you reckon about a fountain in the front yard?

    Thinking of plonking a big one right in the middle of the grass patch.

    I know you've got a crap load of deck, but a lower level one to complete the wrap around would look ace. Or otherwise, a double/triple garage in that space would be good to. I didn't see a garage on your plans at quick glance

    My uncle has a landing strip in his backyard along with other ridiculous things: sauna, spa, gym, cricket oval. No bowling alley though.

    I agree that a matching lower level verandah would finish it off. It looks a little strange without it. I guess the stairs on the right hand side mean no verandah there, but even to the left it would balance things up a bit.

    Yeah I know what you mean. I think after I've finished everything I might add a bit more deck there to even it up.

    Actually now that I think about it, we've actually got a heap of roses in that spot where the deck would go down the bottom. I'll have to take a newer picture, see if the plants down there make it look a bit more balanced.

    My suggestion. Put the bali hut right near the pool, can maybe do an outdoor shower there aswell near the pool to wash chlorine off. A bouncing ball would echo i would put the bb court away from the house, maybe near the trees to lap up some of the noise. Could also do a fountain or rocks/waterfall into the pool.

    Not sure how old your kids are, but with your house raised so high would be cool to put a waterslide in from the verandah !!
