Nice, I like the hallway joinery especially. Provides a great landing spot for when coming in the front door.

Looks great! Our scaff came down this week too but I can’t seem to get a good pic of our facade, as the construction fence gets in the way

I think it’s a good design. It’s nice that the grandparents have a northfacing courtyard. Ideally garage wouldn’t take up north side, but I can see why you’ve put it…

Ours is a custom build too. The stacker was in the original price, and when we changed it to the bifold it was an extra $2k. Our opening is 4m.…
