For those that don't know, I'm building a new home and we've finally got out slab down with the first bricks being laid last week so it's exciting times now, that's for sure!
Over the wknd we also managed to lock down our design for our front elevation. It has a render finish and the builder will paint it in 3 complimenting Dulux greys before I go in and get my hands dirty giving it a facelift to look like the sketch below
Colorbond roof: Surfmist (which looks more white in real life (compared to samples))
Sectional garage door: Surfmist
Main render colour: Surfmist
Feature pillar: Western Myall
Portico: Batten cladding (below) in a composite material. Real timber requires too much maintenance. Perth supplier.
Garage face/module: Dark grey stone brick-shape tiles. Melbourne supplier.
Driveway and path: Dark grey aggregate
'Landscaping': TBC but will have additional park space, fake grass, small garden beds with native plants, some sort of rustic feature.
Would love to hear people's thoughts.
Let me also extend a very warm welcome to the Workshop community. We're pleased you could join us. Feel free to post whenever you need a hand or have a new project to share. We're looking forward to reading about your own projects and plans - perhaps you could kick off by starting a new discussion about your proposed feature garden?
Thanks for the feedback @Juzz85 -- putting a lot of time, thought, effort and money in to my new digs Def trying to keep it fairly neutral so it doesn't date. Inside the house I intend to be more bold/creative where simply changing some furniture a a fresh coat of paint can work wonders.
I can connect you with people in most trades/supplies mate so never be shy to reach out. The cladding I'm getting direct from the warehouse and I'd be happy to help you get a quote.
