The facade we picked is called ultima. Don't think it's been built before on this house type but seen a few on the emporio. Basically the facade will look like this
I have changed the upper Windows to match the Hudson facade from Henley. Thought a picture window would look more appealing with the thicker frame

Looking good! Now, are the triple windows in the first pic standard aluminium awning Windows? I've upgraded to a timber picture window in the family room but looking at these, they're nice & big anyway, maybe I should save myself $2k?!
Also, which room is the pic b4 the bath, with the window round the corner so to speak? Front room? Study/theatre maybe?
Also loooove the kitchen window, it's huge! They still do a bit of a splash back around it don't they?

There standard Windows Aegean. I didn't go the picture window as its not double glazed, plus be mindful we have roller blinds which is why we changed to aluminium. The timber version stick out and there's no room for the blinds unless mounted on the outside.
The pic after the bath is my study (first room of the house)
Also the kitchen window will have a wall tower on the left, theres minimal splash back, think under 100mm per side.

Yeah not cheap, the rear of the property faces south so wanted to get as much light as possible. The standard window in the display looks very nice and more than enough I think. Did you add it in???

Yes, added the window in both kitchen & butlers. Removed one of the dining Windows which is next to the kitchen in my plan so definitely need it for some light.

Not yet, I believe at tender next month. Have just swapped dining & alfresco & theatre & study. Garage will be on the right (if looking at from the street), so opposite to yours.

Cheers thanks. We had been planning this for a while and looking for the right property at the same time. This opportunity presented itself so we jumped on it.

I don't think it's unrealistic. Builders are not interested in missing out on margins gained by making other trades do the work. After lockup it's all cream.
