Hi all. This will be our first time building (KDRB) and we are almost at the stage of selecting our builder. We have agreed on a plan that absolutely works for us which only took us months of deliberation. Our only concern is the Facade. We would love a chateau style but for that house plan/option its not available. That’s our only let down.
Can we do that style of facade after handover?
Will we require a permit or further changes submitted to council?
Who do we employ (trades) to carry out the changes?

Submit modification to council, get approved -> change facade (eg render or re-paint, re-glaze if needed). Nothing fancy. Obviously, if you are not changing one type of bricks to another, this is when it gets really expensive.

Thanks for your responses but the more I think of it the more bricks sounds more flexible then Hebel. I know that they both have their pros and cons but for the extra cost to do hebel, then more money for a veneer stone cladding its going to cost a lot more with so much confusion to begin with.

i am in the same situation.. love the design that Clarendon has but keen to get a French provincial influenced façade which they don't provide.. its a double story and may run into further costs by doing rendering and moulding after even if council approves..
