 House Extension Design and Build Process

    Home Extension Design and Build Process


Stage 1. Our house extension design and build process delivers a 3D concept, scope of works and home extension budget estimate within the first two meetings. That way, your design aligns with your budget right from the beginning of your home extension. No budget surprises!

Stage 2. From there, we move into your detailed design and permits stage whereby we flesh out the detail of your design, ensuring it delivers on your lifestyle and aesthetic. Importantly, this stage delivers council permits and develops all of the ‘brains’ behind your home extension. Geotech engineers, structural engineers, land surveyors, town planners, energy consultants, designers, building surveyors and more all play a role, as required.

Stage 3. Once your design and permits are finalised, your home extension is then professionally managed, drawing upon our pre-selected and qualified registered builders. Each of our builders has been screened for quality, professionalism, communication, qualifications/registration, insurances, feasibility and reliability.
As your expert onsite eyes and ears, we manage the builder on your behalf, checking quality, timeframes and the meeting of regulations. You won’t have to worry about managing the process, industry norms, standards, outcomes and work methods. That’s our job.

Home Extension Costs

Determining your home extension costs is probably one of the first items you’re trying to understand.
Unfortunately the traditional model of engaging an architect to design your home extension then asking builders to quote according to the design is presents several issues that can cause budget blow outs before your home extension works even begin. See 7 questions you should ask your architect or building designer before you engage them.

For this reason, our home extension process delivers a conceptual design, scope of works and budget estimate (+/- 10%) within the first two meetings. This is delivered with at a little expense to help you understand what you can hope to achieve with your budget.

You should also be careful using a home extension cost per square metre as there are several exceptions and exclusions to this method.

What Our Home Extensions Clients say:

Thanks for our wonderful home renovation. We love our new extension and enjoy breakfast every morning with so much natural light coming in. Your design guidance was spot on and the extension itself just looks fantastic.                                                                                                                                                                                                                         P Newman (Melbourne East)

In the very first meeting you understood our needs and developed a concept we hadn’t even considered. Now, several months later, we’re seeing that concept take shape and we just love it.

PS thanks for your help navigating through town planning.

                                                                                                                          J Watts (Richmond)

We really appreciated that you were able to help us understand the costs of our home extension early on. Adriana stepped us through options and ideas and kept us aware of any possible issues. Then we watched our extension grow into a beautiful home. Thanks for all your help, our friends love it too.
