Please help! We have an ugly house desperately needing some love. We are planning a large scale renovation and extension out the back but would love some advice regarding the front. We’re hoping to build a garage (if the budget allows it) and have spent quite a lot of effort clearing huge overgrown shrubs and trees from the front (work in progress). I’d like to stay away from anything too modern as it will stand out too much in our very sleepy traditional street. And I don’t want to have to re-do it 10 years down the track. Thoughts?
