Thanks for the heads up. I'll bring that up with PD as well... hopefully there's no cost to change it now that we have signed our contract.

Hmmm.. I really don't know then. I think I best check with PD just to be sure. Your colours selection document is a lot better than ours. This is all…

I just checked my WOS selections and there's a section called "Capping colour"... I have a feeling that it is. We have chosen shale grey, which is also the colour…

Hi WGB,

The floor/wall tile for all bathrooms will be a 600x600 porcelain tile. Ensuites 2,3 and 4 will have this tile on the floor, skirting, and shower, including the recessed niche.…

Yeah I was quite surprised on just how much influence they can have on the appearance of your home.

For external colour selections, we went pretty much the same as the QLD display home:
Ground floor render - Ashlite half strength
Weatherboard cladding - Wattyl grey pebble 3/4 strength
Gutters - Basalt

The developers flat out said they wouldn't allow anything over 8.5m because it was a council regulation, so that was that.

Yeah we really loved the Waldorf Grange facade and was disappointed to see that it was changed for the Marriott Grange in QLD.

With a tiled roof you really should have sarking.
