Very exciting! We are really happy with the brick colour. For quite a while we were going to go with Jarrah, but then decided on Rouge not long before our colour selection appointment - I'm loving the colour soooo much! It goes so well with our window colour which is white birch. Roof is Woodland Grey (and gutters, facia and downpipes) Garage door will be Dune (along with the feature render) Can't wait to see the render and garage door - well can't wait to see the whole house!!!! They certainly are flying along. After plaster it will all just sit there till the New Year when they start up again.

We were in our Drysdale roughly three weeks earlier than contracted so you might be lucky.
I like the nib wall in between the shower and spa. We have a gap there, with the shower glass running all the way to the floor. It gets very dusty, I wish we had seen your photos before starting.

Things are coming along very nicely with our build. No complaints to make at all. Very happy with our site supervisor and his team.
Rapt with our Shaker style kitchen. Was expecting a textured finish on the cupboards, but it's all smooth - maybe satin finish??? Big Fat Bonus!!!
Painting is almost finished and tiling will start on the 11th of Feb. Tiler wants to meet with us before he starts to make sure that the right colours of tiles have been delivered. Guess he's been stung before????
SS thinks we might be in by the end of the month. Fingers crossed!
Gabel infills have been done. Render has been done - yet to be painted of course. Downpipes are in.

Wow it's looking great. So exciting that you're so close to moving in!
We're also building the Drysdale 30 (Melb South East) - if all goes well it will start in another 4-6 weeks! Can't wait.
Your kitchen looks great, and loving your bathroom tiles. Hope it's all smooth sailing for you now until you move in.
