How has your experience with Carlisle been?
What facade did you chose?
How much did the additional master suite cost?

CGD is a fantastic design with a decent size of rooms with en suits for all the bed rooms. We are so excited to get the site started soon.
done few upgrades.
up to the roof tiles to bathrooms.( Cant worry about the moulds and fungii later)
Bed room downstairs keeping the study.
window to butlers pantry
additional cooking/washing facility in butlers pantry.( thinking of doing most of the cooking there)
two ceiling speakers.
Appointed a private inspector. ( building my first house. Not very confident. I had few advises to have one)
Now waiting phase.

That sounds exciting.
We are also looking to finalise this design with almost the same inclusions, just adding another M to the alfresco extension and taking Jamison facade (Hebel)
where are you building? and if you dont mind, please share the inspector details (and experiences as you go along).

The Canterbury Grand looks amazing!
Were there any issues adding the window to the pantry or ceiling speakers?
Did you extend any walls/add doors anywhere?
I'm looking at the Dorchester 42, but the office/living/theatre will need the walls extended and doors added to be useful spaces for us. There's also no provision in the ensuite for a towel rail/ladder, so we would want to extend a wall by a little bit to make that work. Having never dealt with Carlisle before, I'm not sure how flexible they are at sales/quote/tender stage.
I'd be super grateful for any info!
Built the Henley Monaco Nouveau Q1 Mk2 in 2015.. Currently contemplating another new build
