Don't Hire an Architect or Building Designer before reading this !
How to SAVE money on your next build - GUARANTEED
Would you like to save thousands on your new home? Here’s a valuable design tip…
I know it sounds counter-intuitive.
But before you look for an architect to design your home, choose your builder.
Why? - Well, did you know 80% of architectural plans never come to fruition??
Think about it: architects are trained to be visionaries. They ‘live’ to create the ‘perfect house’.
That’s what you pay them for. But, they are not always focused on the practicalities of building -- how much extra time and money certain design elements may take.
And the reality is, they get paid for the design they create whether you end up using it or not.
There is a way to fuse vision with the practicalities of building. With a few small modifications, you can often achieve the same ‘design result’ for a lot less money.
When your builder and architect work together, you get the best of both worlds…
A design that is beautiful and functional
And a design that is affordable to build
You see, an architect focuses on what a home will look like. The design. The problem is, they rarely factor in the costs. So, what you end up with is a design that can quickly become…
Very Expensive to Build
Every set of plans that come to us could be designed and built cheaper without compromising the design or the home had we been involved earlier – if people really knew how much they could save they would always engage a builder early.
By engaging a builder with an in-house design team not only will they work with you to develop your dream home, they also ensure it’s designed in a way to ensure a cost-effective build…. meaning you save money.
So it’s best to choose a builder first. Then find an architect or a building designer and get them to work together, OR ideally work with your builders team to ensure you are getting your dream home AND the most cost effective build possible.
