Our slab was poured on 10th Feb, frames were delivered on 14th Feb and up by 21st Feb. Garage doors were installed around 14th June to complete lockup, and we…

Thanks. The tile colors were in the standard range. But it was a small upgrade to get the 300x600 tiles on the walls. And a much bigger upgrade for full…

We are getting closer to handover so thought I'd post a few updated pics. It's so exciting seeing color selections come to life and we are happy with the way…

Just a tip for anyone with a picture recess in the entry: check the plan drawings and make sure you're happy with the direction the front door swings. We tried…

Thought I'd share some pics of our Bronte. These are of the back of the house-the roofers started today. The roof color ended up being one of our hardest decisions…

Welcome to the thread allatonce. Yours sounds like a similar story to ours-we are on 6acres on the Central Coast and had plans drawn up for a custom design house,…

We are building on the Central Coast. Have spoken to a few people who have built locally with MJH and all have been really happy with their build. Hoping it…

Thought I'd also do another post about our Bronte Executive Lodge colour selections
Our basic selections are:
*Austral urban fringe praline bricks
*Colorbond Basalt roof
*Colorbond dune facia then from left to right in…

Thanks for your advice. We had decided to have quite a few power points back to back so will cut out some and get done after handover. I don't have…

We have our electrical appointment on Tues and are feeling pretty overwhelmed as we have no clue about technology. Thinking about doing down lights after handover. Does anyone have any…

We did our colours selections today and I just wanted to say thank you to everyone who has contributed to this forum-as a result of all the info on here…

That looks great! What facade did you go with and what roof colour is that? Timeline is also very helpful

Yes. We're lucky in that we're already living onsite on our acreage, and will be during the build. Love the coast lifestyle!
Our cost has creeped up too. We are just…

Exciting times! We're planning to build a Bronte nearby. Currently at step 3 of the pre build process-our file has been with the plan drawing dept for almost 4 weeks.…

We got a message a couple of weeks ago to say CLO would introduce themselves shortly but they haven't been in contact yet. Just wondering if this is normal?

Can't help you with the stone bench question. In my info it's $250 per bank of draws for the vanity. I found some prices for an aluminium bi-fold door in…

In the end we decided not to go with the verandas. They are only 1.4m wide and not really a functional space for the $ in our opinion. We looked…

Can anyone give me an idea on what it would cost if you choose to use a caesarstone colour outside the standard range? Thanks

Probably best to put it back to a MJH building and design consultant in the display homes. The one thing I was worried about with both the MJH designs we…

Was checking out the MJH Facebook page and looks like the Braemar Bronte is due to open in June so may end up being too late for my needs...I'm also…
