Bricks, bricks and more bricks!

I thought the hardest decision would be to decide on the internal colours, but trying to choose the 'right' looking bricks is just as hard! We are after a fairly dark brown colour, but with slight variations in colour between the bricks. Trying to find ones that are not too 'tan' looking, too 'slubby', too 'smooth' or too expensive is difficult. Ideally, I love the look of the Daniel Robertson's 'Hawthorn Black Blend', but for over an extra $7000, it's just a bit too pricey!

Our choices at this stage are between 'Tawny Heritage' from Selkirks and 'Raheen', Rattan' and 'Mocha' from Boral. I have called both brick companies, and they have provided me with a list of homes using those bricks....the 'drive-by's' continue as we make our choice!!

Stay tuned for photos soon!

Ahhh so you have gone from storm chaser to brick stalker!!! Good luck! BTW Mum has been very sick (bedridden for two days) and it would be nice if Stubie gave her a bell.
