I need your suggestion on this one.
We are building a Rochford 34M with Balmain facade. There is a down-pipe on the feature wall and it spoils the look (Please refer picture below).
We had explicitly informed the BC during consultations to not have any down-pipes in the facade. She assured us that there were none and we did not notice any pipes in the drawings as well.
I put the issue about down-pipe on feature wall across to BC and supervisor to check if the pipe can be relocated. They informed that there was nothing they could do as I had signed the drawings and pointed me to the small note mentioned on pipe. I'm not a design engineer and fail to understand to the detail
Has anyone had a similar issue or experience? Even otherwise, please do suggest on how I can remove or relocate the pipe from the feature wall?
I don't think there is a lot that can be done about it or that they had a choice, it's the lowest part of the house and the water needs to go somewhere.
Don't worry too much I think it looks pretty good.
I don't know if this is possible but could you paint it the same colour as the render after you move in?
