Our new home construction journey with "Better Built Homes"

Looking really good. What brick colour did you have and for the cladding? Love their contrast. Nice colour of tiles too and the cabinetry.

Do bedroom door styles and closet doors need to match?

We are probably upgrading all internal doors to corinthian to make it uniform, and keep the linen cupboard as flush hinged doors.

Suggestions for finance options for land/construction

Can you include the build of swimming pool on your land and home construction loan?

Building with Hall & Hart Homes

Great choice. I've been comparing between taubman's gemini silver and light silver for our cladding as I like the tone of grey too. Your facade looks timeless.

Beautiful and good colour combination on your facade. What colour did you have on your scyon cladding? The contrast colour works really well.
