The garage is Colorbond Dune. We ummed and ahhed over whether to go with Dune (pale beige) or Monument (charcoal grey), but felt Monument would make the house feel squat and against the brown brick, look a little too drab. So although Dune is a bright contrast I quite like it. Of course I would love to have matched the garage door with the portico cladding and windows in a cedar or similar colour timber, but the maintenance level is too high and we don't like the glossy finish on the timber look doors. So we felt Dune was the best compromise.
|Bit of a gap at the bottom, but I assume they adjust it after electrical fit off and house clean.|
I also went back to our kitchen appliances retailer yesterday to look at our stovetop in the showroom, specifically to see if we could get away with the placement of the current cutout on the kitchen bench. The overlap on the back of the hob isn't very big at all as it turns out, and the cutout size has at least 10mm tolerance, so we may get away with the current cutout after all. The Site Manager will be pleased to hear this when I tell him tomorrow. It means the splashback can be installed on schedule and without change to the benchtop. If they need to take a couple of mm off the front of the cutout when it comes to installation I guess we'll deal with it then.
Fit off starts tomorrow - woo hoo! So excited that electricals, taps, door handles, toilets, baths, shower screens and mirrors will be installed, as well as the hydronic heating panels and towel rails. All the finishing touches are coming together! I'm waiting on a curtain quote from a meeting with a Victory consultant last week and have an appointment with a Landscape Designer on Tuesday to discuss a driveway and how we cover up our clay pit of a block! Then I start work again on Friday, after 18 months of maternity leave. Woah, big week! Bring it on, I'm excited!
