Now it’s getting real. We’ll start bulking up your plans with all the details – things like the facade design, interior finishes and the fittings you’re thinking for rooms like the kitchen and bathroom, and present them to you.
This is a highly collaborative process so now’s the time to revisit the ‘my dream home’ folder and show us exactly what you’re thinking.
Prices can vary greatly between different materials, surfaces and finishes so decisions at this point can seriously impact final costs. Don’t worry, we research everything really thoroughly, so you can make informed choices about what you are and aren’t willing to compromise on.
So, where necessary, we’ll get further input from consultants, then prepare detailed drawings on things like ceiling plans, joinery, windows and doors so the builder/s tendering for the job know exactly what’s involved. The more detail, the better: it will allow builders to accurately quote and also ensure you can easily compare those quotes (if we are getting multiple builders to tender for the job). We may also share your plans with our quantity surveyor at this stage to get their input and further reduce any cost surprises down the track.
