Building Design Drafting Resources

Never Built Before?

To the uninitiated & even those who have had some previous experience, designing & building a new home, or renovating your existing home can be a daunting & bewildering challenge.

In design, there are many factors to be considered & acted upon to achieve outstanding results.  These factors will influence the direction & extent of the finished product.
Although not conclusive, we have compiled a list of these basic factors.

  • Project Budget.
    No matter what your budget, we all want good value for money.  Through good design principles, construction awareness & minimized engineering costs, our fees are often saved many times over.  We strive to be the best value for your money.
  • Site Characteristics
    The size, shape, slope, aspect & view of your block will naturally have a major impact on your design.  However, other factors may include neighbouring buildings & also underground services
  • Council Regulations
    Council Regulations are as varied as they are colours in the universe.  We search & appraise each allotment on their own merits.  Typically, regulations will stipulate building setbacks from boundaries, maximum building heights & size.
  • Building Covenants
    Most new housing estates have building covenants.  These covenants are over & above council regulations.  They specify a minimum standard must be achieved within the estate, usually involving building materials, building & roof forms & profiles.
  • Design Requirements
    These are what makes up your design brief.  Your wish list of what you would like to achieve, capturing the perfect design for now & in the future.
  • Selection of Builder
    Choosing a builder that has built houses of similar style, materials & construction methods.  It is important that the builder is prepared to listen & work as a team with you.
  • Colour Consultancy Service
    It is important to have the correct selection of building products not only to look great but have to be affordable and fit into your budget.
    We have an onboard colourist that can bring all your elements to work together. A full service of sourcing products; roof tiles – clay or concrete; steel roof products; floor tiles, carpets and paint décor for both interior and exterior is available.

A beach-style home features open style living extending to a large covered deck designed to enjoy the warm tropical outdoors and waters views. The porte-cochere offers functionality and creates interest. This restricted site doesn’t mean restricted lifestyle!

Interesting roof shapes outside and magnificent raked ceilings inside create a uniquely traditional home! The spacious living areas and bright modern kitchen flow onto the covered terrace. Perfect for family gatherings. Contemporary difference! Split-levels create gentle links between areas. There’s plenty of room to work and plenty of room to play. Pole homes offer magnificent views and a feeling of being on top of the world!

The technique for pole home designs is more complex and requires a higher level of creativity and expertise. Decks are of paramount importance as they’re often the primary outdoor living space.
