Two New Additions

Sorry it’s been a while since our last post, but we have mainly been waiting. Waiting for landscaping plans so we can submit for Developer and Council approval, and also for Strata to approve a tiler for Mick’s unit so we can get it on the market.

External colours are mostly selected. We have sample pots of a couple of render and cladding colours so we can double-check them against the brick and roof colour. We had a 2D drawing of the façade with colours drawn up but it’s so hard to depict the bricks correctly. They just look pink in the drawing and that’s not what they really look like.

I’ve included pictures of the colours we like and the draw-up of the façade below:

So, colour selection so far seems to be:

Roof Tiles: Monier Elebana ‘Barramundi’
Cladding: Wattyl ‘Maltshake’
Brick: Boral, ‘Rose Cove’
Render: Wattyl ‘Oporto Wine’
Gutter: Colourbond ‘Dune’
Fascia: Colourbond ‘Dune’
Eaves: Colourbond ‘Paperbark’
Balcony Railing: Surfmist
Windows: Aluminium ‘Pearl White’
Entry Door: Hume Savoy Range XS24 1200 - Dark wooden stain (haven’t picked exact stain yet)
Garage Door: Panelmasta Caprice ‘White’
Driveway: Coloured Concrete Colour Thru ‘Gun Metal’

We’ve also continued to make some changes to the plans (should be finalised this week)…Nothing major now, just small tweaks. More importantly, we have two new additions to the family! And their needs will also now need to be considered when making changes to the plans. They are two seven-week-old cockatiels Mick and I bought this long weekend. I want to get them a large and beautiful cage to sit in the meals area (probably in the opposite corner to the kitchen against the media room wall and stacking doors). They can be a living piece of art/furniture for our house J

Anyway, welcome to the family Lassiter (left) and Bones (right):
