Free Site Appraisal. The demolish and build process begins with an obligation free on site consultation.

Once you are happy with the design for your home and agree to proceed, you’ll be asked to sign a Preliminary Agreement and pay a further fee. This fee covers the costs incurred on undertaking on your behalf any additional preliminary work, including a site visit from our Structural Engineer, necessary to fine tune your plans and provide you with a final (fixed) contract price. You will also be invited to attend our Selection Studio where our qualified Interior Design Consultants can provide practical and professional advice on not only your colour and product selections, but also the little things that will make your house, a home.
