Its still a thrill to see our home being featured on the web

It has also been featured in an article called '10 Classic Hampton style kitchens'  along with some other great company. You can view the article HERE


In other news we are finally on track to finish our second driveway with gravel, retaining wall and new steps. Hoping to get this finished prior to Christmas but I don't like my chances! Our new garage will look so much better once this has all been completed. Our gardens are starting to take off being its 3rd year - our climbing roses have looked amazing!




Exterior Colours

I get asked almost on a daily basis what colour we have used for our render exterior so I thought I quick blog post would be helpful to everyone

We used the services of Angie from Stylish Livable Places to help us decide on our exterior colour scheme. Angie was fabulous to work with and I can honestly say was one of the best things we did over the process of building

Keep in mind that our house is very long and we have used quite a few different elements such as render, weatherboards, thick posts etc with lots of white to break it up so these colours used may not look as fabulous if you have a more modern home or fully rendered etc  Also keep in mind of the way the light flows over your house as this render can look alot darker at different times of the day. Its always best to have a few samples first or better yet hire a colour consultant as they will suggest colours that will suit best for your particular home.





Exterior Colours


RENDER - Dulux Mangaweka - appears quite dark but once painted and with different light this choice was perfect
