Hi Linda,
glad you are liking it. We think we most of our lighting sorted, it is just the pendant light over the meals table that we are unsure of. I agree that the actual light is very important, i just don’t think the pendant/fitting needs to stand out too much as we have enough going on in the space. We love light and we have designed our house to be abundant with natural light. The artificial lighting has also been carefully considered and spaced so hopefully it does the job when the sun is not!

Enjoying your blog. In reference to your lighting not needing to be the hero, I do think sometimes lighting gets put into the background as not that important and it is a very major part of the design process. Needed for general, task and mood lighting. It can change the atmosphere of the space completely with the correct application.

Maybe more comparisions from Cad to actual finish would be very interesting?.

Comment on Blog #2: Site Preparation & Slab. by Josh Bray https://www.mcknightbray.com.au/blog-2-site-preparation-slab/#comment-26 Tue, 01 Sep 2020 01:06:18 +0000 https://www.mcknightbray.com.au/?p=1407#comment-26 In reply to John Murfett.

Hey John,
a waffle pod will generally perform better as the polystyrene acts as insulation. The thermal mass of the concrete can store heat and there is a similar amount in both options. Yes waffle pods in garage, the pods are only formwork so the strength is in the concrete once it sets, so no problem supporting a car. Hope that helps!
