Difference between freestanding 90cm oven and built in 90cm

CEK, I have read about people putting (squeezing) a strip of silicone down the small gap between benchtop and freestanding oven. Although I haven't seen it first hand.
Have you…

Haha I thought it was matched to the garage door already! Must have just been the render. I would go with the surf mist - so many houses these days…

Orph, the garage door goes really nicely with the gutter and rendered column/pillar - and contrasts perfectly with the bricks. I think you have made good colour choices.

How much capacity in the Samsung fridge? Relatives have a F&P and it always seems cramped. Think it's about 600L overall but don't know what the split is....

Custom Home Builders in Sydney – Has anyone used one?

Buildcraft are nearing completion on a house in Strathfield, Ada avenue. Apart from it looking quite nice, I can't help with any more than that sorry.

Awesome lights, yeah I would probably go for a third in the stairs. I think 3 of something is more soothing than 2 (except putts)
Love the floors too. I think…

Only 25cm high, that's way too low. You'd need to be on hands and knees to get magazines out of the "slot". It does look like a fancy showroom piece…

I'd suggest silicone as well. Go into any kitchen shop and ask them, they'll probably have display kitchen with same issue

I think the exposed beam suits the display home because the column is an unrepeated surface. With yours the bricks match the rest of the facade so the fact that…
