We are often asked by our residential drafting clients if it is worthwhile to extend/renovate, or is it easier to purchase a new house. The cost of a new house and associated purchase costs, such as stamp duty and relocation fees, can add up enormously. Often, the cost of extension works can work out similarly to relocating.
If you are happy with your local networks, such as schools, shops, infrastructure and neighbours, it’s well worth considering modifying your house to suit your current lifestyle requirements.
Our residential drafting team in Perth will have a consultation with you to form up a design brief so that we understand your requirements and construction budget. We will also consider the characteristics of your existing home and the site including easements, orientation and slope of the site, to help determine the best possible design for your addition. This will be the important foundation to creating a design that suits your needs.
Once your residential house design has been drafted, the project progresses to working drawings, which allows the project to be costed up by your preferred custom house builder in Perth.
We will liaise with any required consultants, such as engineer and energy rater, to make sure that your renovation complies with all current building regulations.
