though you gotta admit, brick infill looks a million dollars better than cement infill... i've been considering "upgrading" to brick infill where people can see it, and leave the dead side as cement infill...
Living the dream.... yeap a mortgage...

^^Our design has brick infill as standard across the front and cement sheet infill across the back (ranch style house)-as we are having pergolas attached post handover we didn't bother upgrading to brick infill. I think it depends on whether you are going to see it or not.....Albany's place looks very schmick!

Well overall, we a very very happy with the way our house has turned out.
We had our private inspector come through and do his independant inspection today and he was very impressed with the quality of workmanship of the painters and tilers. There was very little found as defect inside which was a huge relief.
I had a slight worry seeing the Oven, Rangehood and Cooktops being installed today, but was told they were only getting test fitted and being taken back to the builder factory for safe keeping till handover day.
Hopefully all the notes and issues are fixed up in a timely manner so we can move into our new home soooooooon. But at the end of the day, we want to move in to a completed home that does not need much attention after handover. We are living with my wifes parents in the meantime, so at least there is no real rush for a handover now.
Wish us luck .................

It looks incredible! I love the little details, the fresh trims, the tiles are carpet combination in the lounge. it's a gorgeous home!
But I am concerned about this tiny man...
At that height, would his behind be scraping across your tiles
Dear J.K. Rowling,
Your books are entirely unrealistic. I mean, a ginger kid with two friends?

Have to say I can't stop staring at the tiling on the main bathroom shower floor , that is some amazing work!!
And is that Dulux Royal Beige on starphire glass in the splashback? Beautiful walls too
My signature is distracting people from my wise posts ...

Congratulations Your house look amazing. Fantastic ensuite - what a great idea having the same tiles on floor to walls I like all the extra additions, which make it really liveable. (Wish we'd thought of some of these ideas to add to our house ) Great job
