MI2: The Sequel and Bricks....

After few busy weekends, we finally made our way back to our block of land at The Ponds on the weekend.

It has been a while since we last visited the area and it was good to see some progress that has been happening there.  We can see that the kerbs are already in place in our block!  YAY!!

We thought that there will be another delay with the land constructions due to the wet weather as of late.  We are happy to see the progress thus far and looking forward for our tender presentation now.  We still have our finger crossed about getting the land registered on time in December...


Before visiting our land, we also made our way to Austral Brick.  The standard inclusions that we got for bricks from Metricon was category 1 and 2 bricks.  So we make sure that we checked them out first.

Our original selection was the Orpheus color from the Whitsunday range.  However after inspecting our brick selection a lot closer, we didn't really like the color very much and instead the Carlisle color looks more appealing.

As we choose a facade that is modern looking, we wanted to have a modern colored theme as well.  After inspecting all the category 1 and 2 ranges, we thought that none of the colors actually matches what we wanted.  Especially when we discovered that the bricks were actually painted and the color does not go through into the bricks.  Photos below:

After looking and investigating all our options, we are thinking to upgrading our brick selection to category 3.  We thought that one of these bricks would look perfect for our brand new home:

Metropolis Series - Topaz color

Symmetry Range - Earth

We really like the Earth color as it will suit our color scheme perfectly, however to upgrade to this category will take an extra $7000 for us.... So we are looking if we can squeeze the budget to fit this in.  It's going to be tough...
