What colour brick, render, and mortar does this house have ?

Hi mdzzj,
I just finished our post contract variations list and sent it to the builder. I included the off-white mortar in it.
Cheers :)

Jasper is more of a dark brown colour, right ? The door is more of a dark green/grey.
Thanks for your input :)

Our site cost went from $22,000 with Porter Davis into $11,000 with a small volume builder, so it all depends on how much your builder is willing to rip you…

Type of concrete design to be used ?

Thanks for your valuable replies onc_artisan.
I'll be getting quotes for this slab based on their engineering plan and see how much extra I'm meant to pay for these beams,

You mean piers at porches and corner alfresco ?
Beams are for flexural strength and footings for stability of the slab.
The plan you have shown is the design of the…

I remember reading here somewhere that the cost of each beam is $250…

So, if the builder provides H Class slab as a standard inclusion, they shouldn't charge us ~$17k for the allowance allocated to it, should they ?
We're just confused and don't…
