Our house has the standard Traditional façade

Roof Tiles -CSR Monier Homestead - Sambuca
Bricks - Austral Urban One - Nougat
Mortar - Rolled - Off White
Gutters/Fascia/Downpipes - Dune
Windows - Eco Classic Double Glazed - Matt Black
Garage Door - Slimline Panel Lift - Dune
Driveway - Merino (sandy colour)
Front door - Windsor 5G - Translucent (also sidelight)

The Infill over the garage door will be painted Dune with the intentions of adding 
timber cladding after handover.

The sample of Austral Urban One Nougat from our builder isn't very accurate at all. And that's even understating it! The weekend before our colour appointment we went into Better Bricks to choose a brick colour. We really liked the sample wall and they gave us a list of houses built in this colour to check out. Below is a better example of what it will look like, it also has the Dune downpipes. Since choosing this brick we have discovered other people have had bad experiences with it, mainly with builders using incorrect cleaning procedures causing the brick to chip. It is a painted brick so beneath is an orange colour. We have our fingers crossed ours will be okay. We paid extra to have this brick so it would be disappointing for it to look under par. In hind sight allowing more funds to upgrade further would of been better.
