>>Jonathan Scott: We’re Drew and Jonathan Scott from Property Brothers.
[Jonathan Scott, Property Brother; Drew Scott, Property Brother] And we have also brought in our property parents, Joanne, Jim, they’re the experts.
[Joanne Scott, Mom; Jim Scott, Dad] They’re going to stand in for you guys. We want to show you a few things you can do around the house to make it your forever home. [Property Brothers (And Their Mom and Dad) Design Your Forever Home] [Front Exterior]>>Drew Scott: Tell me something that is a frustration for you for outside your house.>>Jim Scott: Well, if the parking isn’t close, that’s a frustration because I have a bad knee.>>Drew Scott: Right, that’s actually what I like here, is there’s a roundabout driveway, so you don’t have to worry about backing in and out. [Make sure your driveway gives you easy access to your door.] You just pull up nice and close to the front door, and then you pull out.>>Jonathan Scott: What else? When you see first impression of a home, what’s something that’s important?>>Joanne Scott: Okay, I’m kind of an experience tripper.>>Jonathan Scott: You don’t want to have a trip hazard. Right here at the front, one of the first things I’d do is make sure that it’s a nice, level entry right into the house. [Add a smooth incline to create an accessible entryway.] The fewer things you can stub your toe on, the better.>>Drew Scott: On top of adding that grade so it’s nice and even here, having a double-wide door is great for anybody who needs wheelchair access into the home, too. [Door should be at least 36 inches wide for easy passage.] And for almost anybody out there, it’s important to build community. So I also love having a garden out front, just somewhere you guys can be out here, [Plant a garden in your front yard as a social connection to neighbors.] working your green thumb.>>Joanne Scott: Definitely, yes, I love that.>>Drew Scott: Thanks so much for hanging out with us. I hope we’ve inspired you to make your house your forever home.
