When building a new home, you can really make it your own. From a snuggly love nest for the couple that never got out of their honeymoon period to the ultimate swinging bachelor’s pad; 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.

One of the most fabulous things about our rainbow community is how unique we all are as individuals, so it’s no surprise we are all looking for a home unique to us. G.J. Gardner can create that for 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 aesthetic to create the home that is right for you.

G.J Living


Firstly it is important to think about the room layout and internal requirements, before thinking of your exterior (ditto in life). That’s where G.J. Gardner can help; choosing the right plan and layout for your site and lifestyle, whether you’re all about entertaining in the kitchen, logging in the living room or never want to get out of bed!

An exterior look can be achieved by many different features and approaches, so you don’t have to let it dictate your floor plan, make sure your layout is functional for your fabulous self. Exteriors have a variety of different features to add personality to a home: from dramatic grand entranceways, weatherboard, stone, outdoor entertaining areas, bricks and colour schemes can give a home a look as unique as you are.

Ask yourself: What do you need in a living room? Do you enjoy the serenity of minimalism, or a room showcasing lots of your personality with vibrant colours and prints? Do you want the space to be open plan or would you like a separate lounge to give you space from the flatmates? Perhaps a dance floor to really get the party started? There are many possibilities that can make a plan work for your needs. Do you want large windows that bring the out side in? Or a statement wall with a wow factor? Or a cosy fireplace? These options can all give a living space different themes and moods unique to you!

Choose your colour scheme, curtains or blinds, wallpaper, flooring and make it yours.

G.J Kitchens

They say the heart of a home is the kitchen, where so many of us catch up after work, prepare a meal with a glass of wine and eat together as we share the stories of the day.

Kitchens are one of the most important rooms of the house and naturally, you will want it to fit your unique needs. G.J. Gardner can modify the design with tiles, splashbacks, tapware, handles, cupboards, layout and appliances (to name just a few of the options) to ensure you get to choose 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 really work for you and your lifestyle.
