  4. Hey there, the house looks amazing, the kitchen colours look great, love it,
    Your list is a huge help for some of the additional things i/we are thinking,
    Quick question for you if you don't mind,
    Cornices... how much did Beechwood charge for the square set, this has been playing on my mind as to whether or not we stick with the standard or drop them for the nice clean look, did you carry this throughout the house in the bedrooms, etc.
    Thanks for your time,

    1. Hi thanks for your compliments :)
      We didn't go with square set cornices, I wish we had but didn't even think to ask :/
      Next house!

    2. oh sorry i must have been looking at the wrong thing, lol, i think i am going to ask but apart of me is too scared to know, we will see, cant get tender done yet cause land isnt registered until next Feb so just too far, but coming up close to that time, so i guess more time to think of changes, thanks for your reply
