When you build a home in a new planned community, you will work with your builder to select your home style and lot. And while many of the interior selections will be made by you – things like paint and tile – often the exterior selections of the home will need to be approved by someone else.
Kinniburgh South works with an Architectural Controller, who must approve all builders’ plans to ensure they meet the established architectural controls for the community. This process reviews the exterior colours and materials as well as architectural details of every proposed home.
Reviewing all the details to improve the big picture
This process looks at all of the elevations, to ensure they are in line with traditional home styles being built in the community. This provides a cohesive streetscape for all residents to enjoy. Additionally, the controller will review exterior colour choices, to ensure that the same colour isn’t repeated too close to another similar home, or too often in the community.
This might mean, that as a community fills up, up might not be able to use your first choice of exterior paint colours or styles of trim, or your builder may be required to change details like windows or doors. In Kinniburgh South, the guidelines encourage diversity, and ensure eclectic exterior facades, contrary colours and contrasting exterior finishes as part of the streetscape.
The architectural controls also cover driveways and landscaping and fencing requirements that help to beautify the community.
Ultimately, this is done to ensure the community has an attractive, cohesive feel, which helps to maintain home values for all new home owners.
Now building in Phase 2B
Our builder group is now building homes in Phase 2B. Architectural controls have been approved on nearly half of the 61 lots in this phase, as a number of homes are already pre-sold or being built as spec homes. To ensure you can build the home of your dreams on the lot you want, contact your preferred builder today and get started on your new home plans!
