Great points! We work with clients to custom design and build their dream homes. When clients come with a clear vision of what they want to achieve, then we can collaboratively move forward to produce a design that meets their family needs, their style requirements, maximises the lot characteristics and stays within budget. We bring a team together that includes an architect, a builder and a designer to work with the client at design stage - this ensures that the integrity of the design and well as building sensibilities are considered when developing a plan. I am surprised at times how little some architects know about the true cost of construction, so including a builder in the design consultation is very important. A clear plan with a good team will ensure that your project runs smoothly and delivers you a home that is perfect for your unique needs.

Yes such valuable information. It makes it so much easier when a client has ideas on what they want before the initial meeting. We have a pack that we send to clients based on the type of work they are after with ideas in it. However Houzz is a great place to start. design consultation
