Howdy ho strangers... so anyway, we are at it again (First build - viewtopic.php?f=31&t=56430)!
After we left off with our "Forever home", we had a few more kids (current count at 3, 3 & under), and our then-adequate 498sqm has quickly become seriously inadequate. So we went for a hike one weekend a few weeks back and decided to buy 2.5 acres in rural North-central Vic! I fell in love with the Lincoln 37 by M3tricon, but after flipping, rotating, adding rooms, ending up around 43sq, etc etc, we realised it was the wrong design for our land. Which is sad, because I still love the design.
I met with our our LOVELY sales consultant one Saturday just gone prepared to sign the estimate on the Lincoln, and then spent 9 hours straight with her and my then- 9 week old baby girl in tow (what is it with us and babies and building?!), drawing up new plans for the Denver 36. Except we're now looking at around the 42sq mark once we've added in our structural changes. I signed off on those plans last weekend, and we are now pending pre-start and Studio M appointment. Exciting!
I'm now torn between colours. We will have the Traditional/Aspire facade, with render to the portico and front projected Sitting and Rumpus rooms. I'm not sure whether to go with a Jasper or Dune roof, and what colour bricks to go with it.
So far what I'm thinking is:
Jasper roof, garage, gutters.
Dune Fascia, windows.
Dune roof, gutters, windows
Jasper fascia, render, garage
I'm not sure which colours lend themselves better to a brown/darker brick versus a lighter brick! Interested in thermal efficiencies, but not at the expense of aesthetics. Would love to see your schemes with Jasper and Dune roofs!!
Here we go again....................
