If you love them now, wait until they are cleaned - you will be so happy.
Looks like your build is coming along quickly.

Hi shellby, there was a hold up with the windows, so they've only gone in on the weekend. The brickie is working on his own and has also had to do sections that didn't have Windows. I found the Windows which were classed as Merino(similar to paperbark is slightly darker than our facia.
Didn't even consider the paint on the inside walls matching the Windows, I'm now having second thoughts... Wall colour is basic instinct, which has a slight pinky look here's a sample of the two..

I do still like those bricks - I just love their look and think wow when I see your updated photos.
I wouldn't worry to much about the paint. My Windows are monument but inside is Iron Age half strength - dark grey basically with lexicon window frames and trims.
I'm liking the colour choices with those bricks and roof etc.

[quote="fiat10"]Hi Kazza, any updates for you??
Hi Fiat, not much happening since last post, brickie has gone on holidays for a week so still a small section at the back of the house not finished. Windows have been put in but are a nightmare, they're scratched, dinted and bent out of shape. They were inspected yesterday so hopefully hear back what's going to be done. Very disappointing. We also had a lot of rain and have no temporary down pipe, so it's one big boggy mess around the house.
Bathrooms and laundry are suppose to be fitted out today.
Bricks washed and verandah put on next week.
We finally have a neighbour building up the road and it's very interesting to see how clean and well run the other company's site is.

That is terrible about the Windows. I can't believe they still installed them when they looked like that!
I understand about clean, I was watching a friend's build started a week after mine (and they are in now grrrr) with a different builder and their site was always clean and tidy - mine only just had a clean but most of the time was a mess.

Melbourne. For soundproof reasons it will be RWAR (room within a room) with a floating floor. A lot of tricky angles and airtight caulked joints with no thin or weak spots…
