    Hi Guys,

    I need an input from you all. Hope it wont be too personal if i ask a little help on good facade designs for corner blocks.

    I want to keep something unique which makes the house stand out of the other houses in designs keeping cost low and not too flashy.

    I checked google and could not narrow down on anything.

    Any help is appreciated. If you would like to share only with me, even that will work and is appreciated.

    Some details: small house 14sq mt. Corner block 14 by 16 (if that helps).

    Regards

    What style house? Which suburb in Geelong?

    Those two things will dictate responses to a large extent.

    I thought you meant you were updating an existing facade.

    Who are you building with? Most have pre designed facades and colour schemes so you can just select the one you like or mix it up how you would like.

    If you can drive around the estate and get a feel for it what it is like you might get some ideas.

    I don't like things that are too unique as they tend to be loved by some and hated by others, vanilla all the way.

    Don't think that helps too much with your question :oops:

    So are you wondering what roof style to go with? Like hipped or gable etc?

    A nice portico adds a lot of street appeal on a small house, especially on a corner as it helps define where there entrance is

    A custom builder based out of geelong.

    I was given some options, i dint liked any. :(

    I am based out of sydney. Investment is in VIC. Got some pictures of existing houses as well. Cant figure much out.

    Need something that is simple, good and a bit different than usual stuff. Nothing too flashy.

    Thanks anyways.

    Naaa,

    Nothing of that sort. Can ask for a portico but i was mainly concerned about the side elevation (how it should look) as it would be exposed.

    How the front and side would look and a descent combination of front and side similar and matching throughout (i hope i make sense) :)

    I saw some people used a combination of render and brick and long windows. I hate it.

    Just want something descent and good looking. Can you suggest some?

    It's hard to say without seeing the plans as the shape of the house dictates most of the options.

    For privacy of those rooms on the side you might consider using highlite windows which are windows which start at 1600mm high. Otherwise long and narrow windows but you have stated you don't like those.

    I would mix up the elements and use 1-3 things - ie brick, render and cladding or just brick and render. I wouldn't do bottom half render, top half brick as that is super dated but a feature rendered wall is nice.

    This is not a brilliant example but it shows how solid areas of brick and render can tie it together

    Only render but 2 colours
