Went to hopetoun on Saturday, perfect timing with the grand final on.
Was pretty happy with STD inclusions in most things but I think I will be upgrading some Little things, like door handles for kitchen, carpet underlay, front door, floorboards, ceaserstone bench tops.
In terms of tiles, visiting nat tiles was really good. The STD range was really good & I was happy with everything they had to offer prob only add in feature tiles in a few strips in showers which hopefully won't cost to much!
I really had alot of fun and looking forward to going back to actually make the selections. I found the girls really helpful & very nice.
Now I have to visit boral to confirm my brick & render choices. But the colour I absolutely fell in love with was Jasper, followed by paperbark.
See my blog for some items I really liked!
It's great to hear that you were so happy with your trip to Hopetoun. Choosing your selections is definitely one of the more creative, fun parts of the building process. You have posted some great picts on your blog. Keep up the good work! Cheers, Jess.
