Looking great kjane! What is the brick you chose? Thanks 😀 The brick is old colonial mahogany. Still needs to be cleaned but we are happy 😊

Hi Amanda, We are building the classic façade Elyse. Happy to post some photos and when the scaffolding comes down a few more as it's a bit hard to see clearly now. We are at the eaves stage with brickwork finished, we still need to have the roof put on the ground floor rooms. We have made a few mod...

Gorgeous tile selections, very lux. I liked the Thornleigh Beaumonts too. Good luck with culling, we went back and forth for so long just on the staircase alone :wink: Fingers crossed you get some joy with the latest DA. Thanks kjane!

Hey Zen, All sounds really good, love love your tile selection. Our selection appointments seem like a lifetime ago, well they kinda were (15mths or so). Anyhow we got a larger Aircon system which has 3 zones but we must always have 2 zones on or we were told the pressure could be too much and ruin...

Latest from us - we finally finished all the selections appointments. We have most of the upgrade costs but waiting on 1 more before we can sit down and start culling the list as we are already over our budget. Quick rundown on what we selected: Flooring - we went with TDF coastal blackbutt and upg...

I had a look at the display homes at Kellyville and I really liked the Elyse. While the display Elyse had lovely rendered walls, to keep the cost down I'll probably go with the Traditional facade with the exposed bricks. To anyone building an Elyse with the Traditional facade, does it include brick...
We have gone with the classic façade and the whole house is brick apart from the panel at the front of the main bedroom...

Hi All, We have our tender presentation next Friday. What should we expect? TIA! Not sure how our tender presentation compares to others as we did it mainly via email and skype as we don't currently live in Australia. We went through all the plans and made sure that they covered what we wanted and ...

A big thank you to everyone in this discussion. I recently started the process with Hall and Hart and as someone new to building this is an invaluable resource. Agree, as a fellow newbie this whole forum has been great. Looking forward to hearing how it all goes for you.

Great progress kjane! By the way, what are you building? I can see a classic Elyse but I'm wondering why the alfresco is not in line with the theatre/family room? Cheers!

I've read through the Tree Management Manual and the Tree Preservation section of the DCP, were there other documents I should look at? The tree we want to remove is a jacaranda, fortunately it's not a native tree but it's also not on the pest list so council decision could go either way. I'm worri...
Lucky the tree is not native, I wonder if you propose replacing the jacaranda with a smaller native (especially making ...

That's fantastic progress, @kjane! With the frames up, the inside space looks huge. Weather has been a bit wet this week, hope they managed to get the bricks up for you. We've never rented before, so don't have any tips to share though I've saved alerts on domain and realestate.com.au so I can keep...
Oh man, you can't catch a break with those trees! Sorry to hear it's not going smoothly with the DA. When we were havin...

We found out the arborist included up to 9 trees on the report, including trees on neighbouring properties, so we didn't end up going to Council to check which tree specifically. At our site inspection, the arborist said one of the trees on the neighbouring property was too close to our fence, our ...
Good news on the trees, although frustrating that it slowed things up for you. We also initially had issues with a tree...

I know it’s been a little while posting. Family/work/life has been pretty busy and we have been slowly chipping away at our list of things to do! I’m happy to say we have finally completed our deck. Still a couple of little decor details but overall very happy with the end result!! https://forum.ho...
Wow, the space looks so much bigger with the decking done. Looks great!

Great photos Kjane and LePip. We have started bricks after the rain delays. Happy with the Austral brick colour choice after choosing so long ago. We are still uploading photos on Instagram for anyone interested. You don’t need an account if you follow this link: https://www.instagram.com/rebuildin...
Just had a read of your rebuild, looking great! Can't wait to see the front room with the moody blue paint. What furnit...

What lucky timing on the 1 day sale - that's an awesome deal on the lights! The weather has been pretty good this week so hopefully you'll get moving along with those frames :) H&H submitted our DA last week. Today Ryde council came back with some pre-assessment notes which we need to address -...

That's great to hear kjane! My partner has already said Mahogany is her favourite so that's a very good sign! I've attached a copy of the floor plan our sales consultant Danny drew up.We have a narrow lot (12.5m), and it's been very difficult trying to find a house design that ticked all the boxes ...
So cool that you were able to get the floor plan exactly how you want it. Great idea with adding in the study area, but...

We paid our tender acceptance deposit now waiting on drafting to draw up the plans :) Have been advised to check out the brickyards and the selection looks decent enough. Did everyone go with the included range or did you end up upgrading? Also if anyone is interested in seeing our modified zara fl...
