BEST FOOT FOR­WARD

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - Home - - FOCUS -

If you want your home to be in­di­vid­ual, think about how you want the ex­te­rior of your home to look.

Most de­signs of­fer a num­ber of fa­cade op­tions but bear in mind pre­mium fa­cades will in­cur an ex­tra cost so en­sure you know ex­actly how much it will add to the bill.

Bill rec­om­mends think­ing about this change sooner rather than later.

“Con­sid­er­a­tion should be given to the fa­cade se­lec­tion early — not as an af­ter­thought,” he says.

You could also con­sider choos­ing an al­ter­nate front door from the builder’s range (or paint­ing the stan­dard in­clu­sion in a colour that suits your per­son­al­ity) or even stretch­ing to a cus­tom door han­dle which you can in­stall af­ter you move in for ul­ti­mate per­son­al­i­sa­tion.

Think about get­ting cre­ative with your land­scap­ing in the front yard to cre­ate a dis­tinct en­try­way to set the style of your new home.

Bear in mind land­scap­ing isn’t usu­ally in­cluded in the pack­age price from your builder and would be com­pleted out­side the build pe­riod us­ing a con­trac­tor of your choice.
