Deciding to do a major home renovation or a new build process can be a daunting prospect.

I should know- In addition to being instrumental in the design and documentation of nearly 200 individual homes, I have also undertaken both a major renovation and new home build for my own family.

There is nothing quite so rewarding as sitting back in your beautiful home catered specifically to your family’s needs and desires- But the road itself can be bumpy and fraught with danger.  A friend once described the dream home journey to me as ‘hard-fun’, which I reckon sums up the process just about perfectly!

When commencing the journey, dream homemaker’s concerns generally carry a similar theme;

  • We don’t know where to start
  • We’re concerned with budget and blowouts
  • We want to ensure quality of design and build
  • We are too time poor to research and organise
  • We don’t know how to choose the right designer or builder
  • We are feeling overwhelmed with options

Do you relate to some of these?

When it comes to the navigating your dream home project, we can become stuck when we don’t have the right tools and direction to make good progressive decisions.

Would you like to?

  • Save up to $100k in project costs by understanding the overall process of building or renovating your dream home.
  • Actually, enjoy the process of imagining, designing and building your dream home.
  • Make confident decisions through every stage

How we can work together

I offer a series of ‘Home Project’ mentoring services. Each of the services are built around these six key modules of learning.

MODULE

01

GETTING STARTED

We get down to the heart of why you want to create your dream home and establish your RIOS or ‘Realistic Imagination of Success’. Approaching the process with this mindset will encourage good, rational decision making for the project’s best outcome.

MODULE

02

ZOOMING OUT

Making timely decisions is critical. Zooming out to get the big picture, and understand how the process will unfold from start to finish will allow you to zoom in and make the right decisions at the appropriate times.

MODULE

03

YOU AND YOUR BRIEF

This module is all about you and building your knowledge and confidence around timeframes, size, budget and associated project costs. Then establishing a well-rounded project brief built around three core elements.

MODULE

04

DESIGN + DOCUMENTATION

Finding the right designer is paramount and this module will give you the tools to find, then engage with the right design professional for your project. We determine which permits and associated consultants’ reports are required to conclude the documentation package.

MODULE

05

Your Builder

We explore the different methods of approach that can be used to find the best builder for your project. Being aware of the exclusions and allowance in pricing will ensure that there are no unwanted surprises in the pricing.

MODULE

06

BUILD + LOVE YOUR HOME

It’s time to administer the contract and establish ground rules for open communication with your builder, right from the outset. Then follow the build process through to living in and loving your new home created just for you!

You don’t need to go it alone

When going it alone, owners describe progressing in a state of caution, feeling drained and overwhelmed by the process and the mountain of choices. But when we do it together owners progress with confidence in their decisions and an eventual feeling of immense pride as they stand in their completed homes created just for them.

We can work through together with an option of (3) mentoring packages.
