Metricon or Clarendon....Can't decide??

Yes, we went with the Sapphire Inclusions. We then upgraded our Kitchen and Ensuite to Diamond level. Otherwise, sapphire is pretty good. A lot of our upgrades were then to…

Welcome to both forum and fellow Clarendon builder in QLD.

Stellabella's second build - work stopped...again - 1 month+

Awww, she looks precious. Great that she is putting on the weight. Congratulations!
Are you both thinking of selling it once it is finished?

Yay! Happy moving in, and getting everything organised. It'll be a busy time ahead, but so worth it. Will look forward to seeing 'completed home' pictures when it occurs.

Thanks Rhetti. We got the kitchen colour inspiration from a Metricon display home we had walked through.

There are still boxes of tiles, but haven't checked closely to see if they are simply the unlaid ones or leftovers as well.
