Ha! Darn auto-correct.
Thanks Lex. Yeah we squeezed every last drop out of our block. We went with a Carport instead of a Garage since a Carport doesn't count towards Council's…

Heya Lex! Yeah very exciting. The Blackbutt bricks are sweet.

The top chords of the roof trusses have been painted. I'm assuming this is to stop the treated timber reacting with the Colorbond roofing?
And the carport has had the supporting…

We chose the Aspire for the same reasons. We didn't want too much of our upgrade funds spent on the outside appearance of the house. So ours is just an…

The only real issue they have found thus far was that the rebates for the rear stacker doors that were supposed to be 40mm deep were only 25mm deep. We…

Sweet! So you guys are due to start construction around mid-May/early-June? I'll have to keep an eye out for your build thread.
Here's our latest progress:

The Blackbutt bricks are kinda cool.
And yes we are in South Western Sydney.
Are you going to make a build thread on these forums when you get started?

Nice choice with the Aspire! :wink:
Yeah it's a considerable expense to go all brick, but it's something we really wanted so we splurged.

I was driving past the house today and noticed something in the front room.

We went with brick all the way. No cladding or rendering. And the facade is the Aspire.
How about your Savannah 34? Which facade and construction are you going with?

Yeah sure no problem.
The mortar joints are the Ironed type in the off-white colour. These were standard inclusions, so no extra costs.
The Colorbond roof colour is Shale Grey. And we…

Good choice sir! The Blackbutt colour has really grown on me after seeing it up close on our block.
Chiffon is still nice, but it's no longer my fave. …
