    I like the 1st one, the rest remind me of the 80's (not that the 80's weren't a lot of fun)

    Why does the roof colour have to be dark? absorbs heat
    If a choice between tile or corrugated, the latter any day, low maint, no cracking, no easy entry for break-ins.

    Throw a whirlybird or 2 on the roof (atleast one over bathroom area to suck moisture) and eave vents, make sure the builders put vents in the lower external walls, not low enough to let dirt blow in, few courses high, enough to see if termites, ants etc are making tracks in through them.

    DA states it needs to be a darker colour so we are going with a grey colour roof.

    I really like the "Freedom" from the Everyday Life range.

    This is for an IP.

    Tile or colorbond roof?

    Colorbond Balsalt is a good 'dark' colour that isn't too dark.

    I would do it with rendered maxi brick and some feature brick in grey or black toned brick.

    PS check with your builder which colours are in your standard range.

    Yes im using the visualisation tool and I have come up with this. We arent doing any rendering - just face bricks. Roof is tiles.
