For example, even if a builder does include fencing in the quote, some may have only included half of what will be required. This is because in most situations you’re likely to be sharing the cost of fencing with your neighbour on a fifty/fifty basis.Other builders may include the full amount for fencing in the quote for you to pay, and then expect you to recoup the cost from your neighbours as required.

If you have levels to negotiate, make the steps comfortable and safe with good lighting for night-time use. Large landings can be a great effect to manage levels. BONUS ADVICE: Ensure the front porch/landing is also generous within the scale of the space. Many conversations are had here and they will be more comfortable if you have the space.
