    Hi Kristy
    My wife & I are doing a knockdown – rebuild in Ryde. Stumbled onto your site some months ago when searching for someone using Australs Wilderness range. It’s good to see your build progressing.
    Best of luck.

      Hi Mark, I must say we are pretty happy with the Wilderness brick especially considering it was in our base range to choose from. All the best with your KDR!

    Hi , My name is Jennifer. My husband & I are looking at building the Madison 37 in Newcastle Region. Looking for comments on people who have built with Clarendon and their experience overall. We are also looking at the Wilderness brick. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

      Hi Jen, overall we have been pretty happy with Clarendon. The admin process was lengthy but we got there in the end. We are lucky to have a good Site Supervisor which is very important. We will be over schedule by the time we finish (hopefully in about 4 weeks or so) but a lot of that is due to having to wait 10 weeks to get a slab poured which is not the usual. We are very happy with the Blackbutt Wilderness brick. Just be prepared as the colour is painted on there will be some slight inconsistencies in colour and you can see the slightly lighter colour inside if there are chips on the brick. I’m glad we didn’t end up paying to upgrade though and stayed with a standard brick. More money to spend on other things!

      I would highly recommend joining the Home One Forum and check out the Clarendon Thread. There is a wealth of information on there and you can ask questions to people all building with Clarendon. The link is http://forum.homeone.com.au/viewtopic.php?f=31&t=48073

    Hi Kristy,
    I am very much interested to see your your home’s final outlook. You did not post anything since November last year. We also built Madison 35 with a lot of modification.

    Hi Kristy

    I too would love to see the wrap up of you built as we are looking to build either the Madison 38 or if possible the Madison 35 with the Madison 38 upstairs layout.

    Thanks
    Jeff
