We're getting a monument colour garage door too - hard to decide what colour to go for the driveway! We're also debating stencilcrete or similar, but that'd only be for…

Fairmont 35 adapted Hamptons facade - CLARENDON homes

My SS said they deliver the gyprock early (and put some upstairs) so they don't have to try to do it while the scaffold is up later. They will quite…

House is looking great! I wonder why they put my stone bench tops down before doing the painting etc, but left yours off? Though the fact you're getting Diamond kitchen…

So hasn't really been an update in a while, mainly because there's not been much to update! The painting is now complete. The main floor tile finally arrived last week,…

Thanks Rhetti! We can only claim part ownership of that vision though - the facade we'd chosen originally has the whole front rendered, but we liked the modified facade on…

Thanks!
Apparently that's just how it is... we'll see how it looks when it's finished - might be that we come back after and get some more tiling done...

It's called Stormy Skies... we love it, particularly the way it contrasts with the roof and gutters :)

So we had our meeting with the tiler on 24 May - he'd already started on the bathroom floor tiles and was doing a great job. We checked all…

Double story Balcony or bigger house with no balcony

I'd only be guessing, but maybe balcony houses tend to have a better kerb appeal? Though you can easily have a nice facade otherwise.
If I were looking at two…

So they say there is an allowance for breakages etc... but that sure is some allowance! Maybe our brickies were particularly careful?
Either way, we'll try to minimise waste and…

It also depends on the size and location of the balcony - I have one off the master bedroom currently, which looks out over bush land. It's not very big,…

Yeah they're overhang. The thought is maybe to get those soft close devices you can retrofit and do that after handover. We'll see. We don't have soft close at the…

That's always the risk you run... if he didn't want to have neighbours close, he shouldn't have built close the boundary. What a fool.
