Some changes

We have spent the weekend trying to find the right brick for our home but its such a hard decision. We know what we want but cant find it!! Having two little children with you doesnt help either.  We went to a few more display homes just to get some ideas and have made a couple of changes. Just minor things such as the way the balcony door will open and we are trying to relocate the fridge in the kitchen. You only do this once (hopefully) so we want to make sure we get it right. We have also decided to go with ducted vaccuming. Getting close now!!!


  1. It's great to see someone else building with Fairmont! Which home design are you building?

    Picking bricks is really tough, I hope you don't also have estate guidelines to worry about like we do. Just make sure you take lots of photos when you go to the display centres. And take samples of the bricks you like so you can see them at home in all light and against other finishes you choose. I also liked to google the colours we were interested in to see some photos of finished houses with them (though all the research I did went out the door when Mick and I fell in love with a brick called "Rose Cove" at the Boral display centre!).

    There are also companies that will do up an impression of your home using the colours you're thinking of choosing. We used New Home Visuals and found it helpful.

    Anyway, good luck! I'm looking forward to following your journey :)

  2. Whoops! Just saw that you're building a modified Kingston 33. Anyway, welcome to the "Fairmont Family" :-)

  3. Thanks for the tips!!! Just checking out New Home Visuals now.
