When we look out of our windows at this time of year, we see a choice of trees and sheds – nothing too dramatic or exciting, for that matter. We are generally content with our houses built in estate fashion. For many years the only choice for most was the corporation square concrete and brick block with a window in each corner of the front elevation. A plain front door and not a single item to beautify it made for years. Nowadays though we can choose to have new windows, doors and all manner of new design – so long as it doesn’t infringe any local building bye laws. Some folk are lucky to be able to build a totally new place – calling in the experts in bulding design, architects and planning experts. Amazing how much information up front can be gained from browsing the online sites. So very helpful to be informed before you embark on a project.
