If you have commented on a thread you get updates so you can unsubscribe from those. Then you only get emailed when someone comments on a thread that you're subscribed to but havent commented in

Wonder if anyone has also been affected by this?
We got an email on Friday from RI saying that Essastone is discontinuing all their current stone colours. The French Nougat we chose for bathroom and ensuite is ok because the cabinet maker still has enough stock, but not the New Chinchilla for Kitchen. So we had to choose a colour from the new range.
So we went to Laminex this morning and we are so lucky to have found a colour called Bisque Cloud, kind of a cream-ish colour with subtle, light milky-ish fleck. When put next to the Snow Drift Gloss (what we picked for cabinet), it gives a crisp but not overly strong contrast. Works really nice!
It's just strange that the way Essastone replaces their entire range like this! Apparently only some of the new colours will come out in March with no actual date confirmed (incl Bisque Cloud), some in April and some in May. Even the large sample slabs won't be in Laminex showroom for another 3 weeks or so.
We actually like the Bisque Cloud more than New Chinchilla but just hope it won't delay our build for too long. Fingers crossed.
Below is the photo of Bisque Cloud that RI emailed us, not really showing the true colour but not far off.

And, before we went to Osbourne Park Laminex, we called the Laminex showroom in Bibra Lake because it's closer to where we are. But the guy who answered the phone told us that they had only received an email from Laminex the other day informing the colour change over, and thats all they know! They haven't got samples or whatsoever, not even images!
If anyone also have been and looked at the new colours, would like to know what you think about the new colours, or if you like or have decided on any one?

A lot happened in the last week or so.
Window glazing done, ceiling done, cornice done, all doors done, all shelves done. Only one thing missing now is the front door lock, which I believe is the only thing to be done before they can lock up...I think?
We've done the re-selection for kitchen bench stone color last weekend so just hope this does not delay our build too much. Stock is supposed to be available in March. Fingers crossed again.

We are nicely surprised! All cupboards are in!
Kitchen. Still waiting on the stone. Ss told us it will arrive on 9th March hope he's right. Love love the overhead and a big relief because we didn't want a bulkhead so we are worried that the overheads will be ridiculously long. But we love the way it turned out to be!
Bathroom. Bath tub is also in.
Both ensuite and bathroom will have French Nougat top with this Caroma Caravelle under counter basin. Ignore the tap.
Laundry. Rock Salt bench top and warm white doors
Really happy with the progress!

Hi could someone tell me about the tiling meeting is really all about? CLO said we can discuss tiling layout in the meeting but i thought that's all been decided at the start? Should we prep anything for the meeting? How long does it last?
any advice would be great! TIA!

Hi teresa, house is looking good. Coming along quickly.
I never got told or had the tile meeting date booked in. Basically the tiler rang me up in morning and asked me to come down as he was going to start. Thankfully i had day off.
But the meeting is just to confirm which and where u want the tiles laid. Which wall u want a feature wall on etc. incase the plans at start had said something different to wat u wanted. U don't need to prep anything either. I basically dropped everything and went done and was like " yep that goes there, this here etc had look around n left lol.
