So I took that photo - it's of the kitchen/dining/living in the Clarendon Fairmont 40 on display at Rochedale.
There are pictures online though, and yep there is a 3d walkthrough…

Those colours upstairs look fantastic! Are they how you imagined?
Looking forward to seeing the downstairs finished

I agree that new houses generally cost more. But then you can tailor everything to what you want, and there's less compromise. You're building the house with the layout you…

Ground floor bricks are complete!
Scaffold will be put up next week, but the bricklayer is having the week off, so there won't be anything until the start of May.

It has probably my favourite upstairs of the the homes i've been through, and the downstairs living area is massive!

Yeah good idea - try and compare to what you can. I think the Arizona/Wentworth upstairs is fairly similar to the Sheridan 37/38.
FYI, we moved the downstairs wall at…

Downstairs bricks are almost done - just the front and the top of the right side to go.

How good does the Crestmead on display there look??
What design are you thinking of?

Stage inspections for new build in Brisbane

I've been using Allinspect - have done slab and frame so far. Very good communication, thorough inspections and couldn't do more to be helpful. Highly recommend them too.

It was actually $5k cheaper at tender. We were constantly changing, adding and taking things away, and they missed a couple of things off the tender, but the sales consultant…

Those are the two Clarendon builds we'd stop and admire every time we came through the estate. You must be very proud of how it has turned out!

So the bricks are from PGH and are called "Girraween". They're kind of a white/cream, but closer to the whiter end.
