Enclosure of the patio: any specifications e.g. glass, aluminium?
Awaiting exact specifications, but all enclosures of patios will have to be of the same materials and colours, etc. to be specified by the architect and installed by the developer.

It is a Roller type door. You can request a ceiling in the garage at your additional cost TBA.
Are we allowed to put up any carports? e.g. aluminum or shadow netting for a 2nd car on B type units?
