The faux beams would be my choice if I wanted a distressed appearance.

Normally, I want the "real thing" but the way these new beams look (see posting above) they are very realistic. With that high ceiling they would look great. In new builds, my trim people do an amazing job of distressing and hand making the true wood "covers" over infrastructure and stain them like the trim or flooring whichever the client wants and they look amazing. Talk to your builder about the options. Our trim people charged less than the premade faux beams but each area is different. You will have to price them out. But, yes, with that ceiling distressed beams would be beautiful.

If you want to go more mid-century modern, you could put some glass panes in the gable if there is a cathedral ceiling upstairs.

New front door; perhaps in a nice wood clean lines. Then put your money in the landscaping, the gravel near the house looks dated.

@Sophie the contractor is registered with our South African building board. I agree that it should be replaced at his cost. My concern is that there are 12 column supporting the patio roof , they have supporting foundations from below the slab. the slab was cast over the base with protruding vertical steel bars which are additional support for the columns. if the slab is re done and taken out it might cause movement or disturbances to these columns....

Some ideas: build a low wooden bench between the columns and find some post-rationalization for it; fill with a good flexible caulk and call the crack "character"; paint a border on top of the foundation wall (up to where the cracks are) to match the foundation side.
