The CARLISLE HOMES & SPECTRA General Information Thread

Does anybody else here think that the internal paint (some Dulux type) that CH uses is just a bit crap? I find that it marks really easily and it isn't…

mil48-2015, so sorry to hear about your situation and I feel disappointed for you.
I can't comment on any of the things you've listed as I haven't experienced them. At least…

Yes, I totally get you. But they won't, or shouldn't, charge you a variation fee if the mistake was on their end. From my experience, the mistakes were on their…

You will get another set of drawings, the final construction drawings, before you begin on site. They will send you this before anything happens on site. This is the drawings…

Render advice needed

I think Colorbond Paperbark would be a closer match to River Gum Beige. You could then have your render in any colour since your bricks/garage combo is quite versatile. I…

Help with brick, down pipe & fascia colour

My external colours are very similar to yours - dark roof and dark brown bricks. The gutters match my roof; the fascia, downpipes, windows, and front door are in surfmist.…

What colour would you make these stripes?

Paint the whole thing above the garage the same colour as the gutters and fascia. That way it blends in with the gutters and fascia and becomes less of a…

Which gutter colour?

I agree with Narrewarren01 - the gutter shouldn't be the highlight. I'd stick with surfmist gutters.

As the owner of the land (I assume that settlement has occurred so you are now the owner) you pay water service and sewerage service charges quarterly. Even if your…

It's certainly very possible to do have your selections done in half a day. You just have to be prepared and know what you want and your colour consultant will…

Opinions on bathroom and ensuite layout wanted

I personally prefer the original layout. I'm not a fan of having the toilet in the main bathroom.

Your tap is shaking because it's most likely too heavy for the sink. And you are right in that there is no support for the tap as it is only…

New Home - choosing an elevation

Same reason as aloenyx. The streamlined part at least. Not the spiders. Although, I don't like spiders either.

I believe the recess is referring to the top bit of the portico.
I like option b. Not recessed.

Sahara Q1 - happy ever after

Can I ask why you guys decided to go with an outside mount as opposed to inside mount shutters? Was it because there wasn't enough room within the window frame?
