That looks amazing Rj-mcgray. You must be so happy with it. So I'm assuming that means you are all done by (hopefully) the end of next week! Congratulations!

Thanks for the reply Michelle.

We are hoping to stick with Colorbond colours as we are currently purchasing a pre-made garage and want…

Colours look great Parrydise. I am a big fan of the greys, especially love the Silkwort. Can't wait to see pictures RJ-McGray.
We are looking at using Colorbond Dune colour for…

We are still waiting on a final estimate from our builder, though he has given an initial estimate…

Thanks RJ-McGray. We are hoping to hear back from the builder with an estimate by the end of this week. After that, the building designer will prepare the plans to…

Hi again,
Not sure whether we will be able to stay the whole time things are being done at our place. We were hoping to move out initially for a month…
