Looks great.
Hopefully it doesn't get too wet today with the terrible weather.

Our build with Express Two Storey (Ventura) in South West WA

Looking good. The tiler will be in next.
I think this is probably the most exciting part of the build, seeing the cabinetry and tiling go in and getting a good…

Help - who else makes bricks?

Looking at your other post I know what you’re after. We were after the same look, however some of these recycled bricks look great and others look terrible.
We’re thinking…

Window colour dilemma!

Are you worried about how it will look from the inside?
We have black internal fittings like you, along with Monument/Charcoal window frames and I think it looks great together. Unless…

We have Midland Brick and Brikmakers over in WA (along with Austral). Not sure how difficult it would be organise to transport some from Perth to the east?

Demolish & Build A New Home

Demo should cost between $15-20k in Perth. If you’re in an older area with overhead power then you’ll be required to do a power dome conversion, which is no longer…

Building with B1 Homes

If B1 prices their upgrades anything like sister company Redink, you’ll be in for a shock!
We were really keen to go with Redink, however before we even got to discuss…

Wait until you have to fit out that robe. We’ve got the same problem. Even for IKEA you’re looking at over $2k for something decent.
If you do custom cabinetry…

Not too sure sorry. Our entire house is single course face brick. With our build they priced it as part of the whole contract price, so I couldn’t tell you…

Went well today. Around 20 minor cosmetic items that need rectification prior to handover. They had already picked up things that I hadn't noticed, like a couple of missing clips…

Liquid limestone does look soft and chalky. You probably would want to be careful with a pressure cleaner on it.
It’s sort of gone out of fashion now, you don’t…

I'm talking with a cheap home use Karcher and from a distance. Are you trying to say that Limecrete is not strong enough to be cleaned with a basic pressure…

Hi Chekii
Saw your plans go up recently. Good luck with the build.
We haven't signed up yet, however we're likely to go with Jarrad from Allwest Decorative concrete. He came highly…

First job will be wall painting, then timber floor install and blinds (which arrived on Monday from ABC Blinds). We'll probably move in after this point.
After we move in I'll…

Hey, do you know what the paint brand was? We're in a similar spot soon, having to do the wall paint.

The stairwell looks great. Have you got a nice feature light planned for hanging above it? Sometimes we regret doing a single storey....

We're having a Monument coloured garage door, so we think that the grey might look a little dark against the darker colour?
