We are looking to build double story on a narrow 10m wide block in Perth. Almost everything here is double brick but I want to explore reverse brick veneer. I like the fibre cement external cladding render type look, not a fan of timber.
1. Are most builders open to RBV and which ones are best at doing it?
2. Costs. Should be cheaper especially as 2 story?
3. Size. Is RBV less width than double brick? I'm assuming it could be 5-10cm less. On a 10m wide block every cm counts

In reply to your message, Reverse brick veneer is becoming more common in Perth.
The cost is actually more expensive than traditional double brick, I can go into more detail if need be.
It's slightly larger in width than traditional double brick. 90mm internal leaf, 50mm cavity, 90mm stud frame, 15mm packer then cladding. About 265mm if you go with Scyon Linea
