The relationship between yourself and the designer of your home is incredibly important. Katie takes the time to understand the aspiration behind your project to form a detailed client brief.
Projects are scheduled to prioritise one project in the primary design development stage at any one time. We are our toughest critics and leave no stone unturned in imagining your home.
We work together to ensure you are comfortable with every aspect of the design before following on with detailed drawings and documentation for council approval, and co-ordination of supporting consultants where required.
As a Registered Building Practitioner since 2003, Katie takes pride in preparing the detailed documentation underpinning the construction phase of every design.
The projects are at various stages of documentation, construction and completion. Use the unique project tags on each to track their progress and watch them come to life.
Renovation master plan
Owners often dive into renovating areas of their home without a Master Plan or end goal in mind. This can become costly or restrictive down the track if you discover your new bathroom or kitchen may in fact be in the wrong place. This Renovation Master Plan service was developed with the intention to provide pure design outcomes specific to your project.
