When building a new home, you can really make it your own. This feature shows how homes can look unique, yet be based on the same floor plan. Every home G.J. Gardner builds is entirely different, even when they are built from the same design!
As the saying goes, everyone is unique, and we can make a home unique to you. Starting with the floor plan and going into details of roofing, cladding, window types and placement, along with other little touches that can make big or subtle differences. There are so many possibilities, it’s all up to you. Here are just a few of the ways you can add your personal preferences and flare to your home.
Firstly, it is important to think about the room layout and internal requirements, before thinking of your exterior. That’s where G.J. Gardner can help, choosing the right plan and layout for your site and lifestyle. An exterior look can be achieved by many different features and approaches, so don’t let it dictate your floorplan, make sure your layout is functional for you.

We recently wrote an article on kitchen design and the functionality of a kitchen. With this in mind, kitchens are another important room of the house that you can modify to fit your unique needs. Tiles, splashbacks, tapware, handles, cupboards, layout and appliances are just a few of the options you get to choose in the design of your home to really make it your own. Kitchen layouts are one of the most important things in the design of a kitchen, ensuring this workspace functions uniquely to those who use it, modifications from sink placements, to ensuring the spice drawer is next to the stove, are all possible adjustments to make a plan your own.
