Our Process

Our strength is in seeing a project through from the custom design to building completion.  But we also offer design only and build only packages to suit your needs.

Our holistic approach allows us to oversee every step from the initial brief meeting through to the handover of the completed home, ensuring the best results for your site and your lifestyle.

Working together

We’re not a project builder, we’re all about working closer together to achieve truly customised results. As a small team we offer a seamless personalised service where you will be walked through the full design and build process with the same team. And to ensure there are no surprises down the track, our site manager and project manager will be involved right from the outset.

While our strength is in designing and developing from concept to completion, we can start working with you at any stage of your project. Be it selecting a site or looking at the finishing touches, our experience can have a positive influence on your environmentally friendly home, whatever the development stage. We offer a range of finishing options from a core building for those who want to do the finishings and fittings themselves, through to a full turnkey package which includes everything down to integrating your home with the landscape.

Whether you are starting with a blank canvas or already have a good idea of what you want, we will work with you to turn these into a buildable concept.

Once we have agreed on a brief we will:

  • Analyse solar paths and breezeways for your site
  • Discuss how the design will work with your lifestyle
  • Prepare concept design plans and elevations
  • Complete documentation as required for Development Applications
  • Provide a detailed quote for the project

Detailed Design

Once you have approved the concept and quote, we work with you to finalise the details of your home.

During this stage we:

  • Work through the selection process with you to finalise the details of your home
  • Prepare engineering drawing
  • Complete an energy assessment
  • Apply for a certificate of design compliance
  • Submit your building application


Our design team will work with you from the start through to project completion to ensure a seamless process.

We pride ourselves on attention to detail, tailoring our service to each client’s individual needs.
