A fab­u­lous new façade

Home Renovations - - Fresh Ideas -

Steph and Karen du Toit trans­formed the façade of their Swellen­dam home by re­plac­ing the old cor­ru­gated-iron awning with a wooden floor to cre­ate a func­tional bal­cony. One of the two up­per win­dows was then turned into a door that opens up onto the new bal­cony and the old wooden pil­lars were re­placed with longer, stur­dier ones. The orig­i­nal awning was then used to cre­ate a roof above the bal­cony. The cast-iron de­tails in white work beau­ti­fully with the walls painted in Prom­i­nent Paints’ Char­coal and a stoep floor in red com­pletes the look.
