Well, we are one step away from selecting our bricks! Mr Boral Man, as forecast, was as helpful as the Amber Tiles uninformed dude. No list of homes built from Boral bricks, so no soup for you!
We are, therefore, very close to settling on PGH bricks. The two now in contention are Blue Steel Flash (which sound awesome) and Espresso (which sound brown, but are not). Husband is leaning towards Espresso (he does love a coffee) so we are heading out on another drive with the kiddipops tomorrow to check out a few more houses built from PGH Espresso. And then hopefully we’ll have a winner! Here’s a house made from Espresso bricks:
Before that the kids and I will pop down to the old house on the new block and paint a few more colours on the interior walls so we can see what the colours look like in the actual light. We think we’ve found our main interior colour (half-strength Taubman’s Silver Charm), so that’s pretty exciting. It should go nicely with the very dark brown bamboo floors we’re hoping to have through the main part of the house. Honestly, it’s like putting a jigsaw puzzle together without a picture 🙂
The other thing we are doing is going through the first set of plans against the concept drawings and our tender documents – the draftsperson missed a few things, so we need to make sure they’re added in now. Once we’ve done that, chosen our external colours/selections, then the next step will be electrical and internal selections. Oh, and the next set of plans!
