This little ugly duckling of a house needed a lot of help in the roof department! The original tiles left a lot to be desired but we didn’t have the budget to splash the cash on a whole new roof. We wanted the extension to complement rather than contrast the original roof, so needed to find the perfect crown to sit atop this little black beauty.Read More
Choosing the colour scheme for your home’s exterior can be really quite daunting. Remember that your front façade is the first thing people see so it should set the vibe for the entire home. No pressure guys, but it could be the make or break of your whole vision! #somuchpressure!Read More
