We often hear…
“I got told a builder can do our designs for free as part of the build why should I pay for my plans?”
Builders are great for managing the construction of the project some builders include a ‘free design service’ when they undertake your project this is often hidden in the cost of the build as they need to engage with an Architect or Draftsman and an Engineer to complete a full set of drawing to submit them for building approval. Building companies may supply you with a basic layout or concept as part of the quotation process.
Visualise your dream home before starting any construction.
The biggest regret we hear is “we wished we changed this” or “I would have done that slightly different”.
We all visualise our dream home in our heads, technology has changed this, you can now visualise and walk through your dream home before you start any renovations.
We design high-resolution 3D rendered concept drawing of your dream home, you can even have a 3D virtual walkthrough you can view on your computer or tablet bringing dreams to reality.
Doc Kick Off
This is the stage where we discuss the internal components and finishes. Review on the previous discussion and add to the design.
Design Development stage is where we develop the design further. Identifying and resolving any construction details. Finalising material choices and including this information in the drawings.
Building Permit Review
At this stage we’re bringing all the information together on a set of drawings suitable for council submission. Sections, details, Internal wet area elevations & electrical layouts will also be included in this set.
This is the final review stage from the client. Only minor change would usually be seen here as the drawings set is reaching completion.
Once drawings are approved by the client, the project is then submitted to council for building permit approval.
On larger jobs a construction set is normally required. This would involve additional drawings such as door & window schedule, ceilings plans, slab set out, and more intricate details to assist with construction.
How Much Do Renovation Plans Cost?
People are under the impression building designers are expensive.
This couldn’t be further from the truth they are often looked at for luxury home designs or for large building projects.
Now, this is true in some aspects, however, many just like us, work with everyday homeowners for a wide range of projects.
We begin the design process by getting to know you and exploring your lifestyle.
First and foremost, our job is simply to listen to our clients and translate their vision into an architectural expression all while factoring in budgets, schedules, building codes, and requirements.

We can give you honest opinions about building materials, we don’t have alliances with any timber/brick manufacturer- or down along those lines, for example, a builder that has a bricklaying background may want to push a double brick house.
