Dear Home Building Enthusiast,

Spring is in the air and as the warmer weather finally encourages us to leave our homes a little more often, we can see what impact the winter months have had on home facades.

From painting tutorials to style inspirations, this edition is all about helping you spruce up your home’s exterior.

An attractive facade not only sets the tone for your whole house but can also increase its value. However, it’s important to ensure that the facade you choose fits in with the surrounding landscape and has maintenance requirements you can (or are willing to) sustain.

Enjoy!
