Finally ! The external colours. It's taken some time, but I think these will do :
Details are :
Roof - Jasper
Gutters, fascia, downpipes - Jasper
Garage door - Jasper
Front door - Jasper with 3 panes of glass
Cladding - Taubmans Kidskin
Bricks - Boral Blackheath
Mortar - off white, raked
Aluminium windows - White Birch
Balcony posts, handrails - Jasper
Moroka finish - Taubmans Manhattan
The front door will however be changed to a dark-stained timber at a later stage. For the time being, we went with a standard door to avoid a variation charge.
I might even look into a timber-look garage door at a later stage, also. This was what I initially wanted in addition to the timber front door, however EB's prices was ridiculously expensive.
As far as the demolition goes..... it will 'apparently' be done by Tuesday at the latest. I'll believe it when I see it ! We were told - by Monday. EB were told - Tuesday. Either way that will be 8 days. 2 1/2 days demolishing & 5 1/2 days of no activity. Unbelievable !
Peg-out has been ordered for the following Friday ie 3 October. Have yet to hear when excavation starts.
That leaves only 2 months of building before Xmas holidays of 5 very long weeks with no activity !
