Get well soon Dawn. I hope you don't have to spend too much of your leave sick. Always seems to be the way, so frustrating, you need to be able…

So happy to see walls!!! Looks awesome! Yay to bricks starting! It's nice to have some solid progress for a couple of weeks while they brick.

Looks great with solid walls! I can't wait for that moment.
What an odd mistake to make! Did you ever have 2 in an old set of drawings?

Bottom half of the south side is done to the front now. Back is done and they were working on the top of the alfresco columns this afternoon .…

It's on their website in 600 and I have some pictures I saved from homeone when I was looking last year. Only wet or textured like the other 600's…

I should clarify for everyone that the "Wet" doesn't look as wet and shiny as it sounds. I had to get down to a low angle facing the sun to…

In person they do all look like they could be from the same set (apart from the axis being a bit browner). But they are all quite different when…

We were content with the 450 as well and never really looked at 600's much due to cost until we couldn't find another 450 we loved. It's so hard…

The Matt 600 is textured. The tile girl quickly warned me off those indoors! Not that she needed to tell me, we've lived with textured tiles inside before,…

Hello! If we could get the Portland in the 520 square I think it would be worth it but I just can't quite convince myself for something that doesn't…

You and me both! And if I could chuck it on the home loan I would.

Our concern with the 450 is the repetition of the dark/light corners could end up looking a bit checker board like Belga grey does in large rooms. If only…

I love your tile, I think it's probably closest to the Adelaide grey which sadly is still my fav :(

OMG hubby just had a 20 minute conversation with our new/old SS! That's got to be longer than we got to speak with the previous guy all up! …

Here's where we're at with tiles... I would love any thoughts or opinions :-D
We've narrowed it to 4, all have their compromises.

That is a very good price for the bench, I would jump at that!

North side bricks were finished today. Alfresco columns look to be set up ready to go tomorrow, I'm excited to see them done to define the space!

I'm guessing last because they are a different colour mortar. Which I must confirm they know. I haven't seen any black oxide on site so not sure the message has…

We will be diy'ing on a shoestring budget. We've put a bit aside which will hopefully get the front yard done. Then we should get our landscape rebate from the…

It was an average height problem. It's so stupid, making it lower like this benefits no one (neighbours are to the south and it's up against their garage) and everyone…

On one side! Things don't happen quickly at our place! But in this case I'd rather they take their time.
