Building A New House
Jan 03, 2021 10:49 am
We are building in busselton, we have yet to do our prestart and are currently undecided on theme of the house... We are a few kms from the beach and also overlook vacant land. Beach vs earthy?
My husband is not a fan of render frontage only of homes so we have decided on brick facade. I personally love render... anyhoo, compromise! I was originally thinking modern beach and using limestone 2c brick (budget restricted) but we are surrounded by limestone homes, so thinking midland silverbirch 2c.
Suggestions on window, roof, rendered blade wall and rendered alfresco pillars etc would be amazing.
If anyone has built using these bricks photos of your home wld be amazing!

Yes! Good point.
Thank you for your feedback.
Render means repainting in years to come. Bricks live on with nothing to do for at least 30 years then touch ups with mortar.
