Do you have what it takes to make your dream home reality? Do you have the knowledge and the skills to design your home from blueprint to build? If you don’t, there’s still a way to get the ball rolling). An experienced architect can not only design the structure, but coordinate with the builder as well to ensure all specs are realised and all deadlines are met.
Quality Doesn’t Come Cheap
Western Australia is home to some of the most creative architects. They are highly-educated professionals, some of whom have won design awards both locally and internationally. While several will charge a flat fee based on your design requirements, others will bill the client on a per hour basis.
Worth Every Penny
If your vision is so unique, and the execution is far beyond the capabilities of any builder, then the services of an architect are well worth the cost. The only way to know for sure is to ask. Some architectural firms have online forms that can be filled out for a quotation. They will ask for the kind of house you want built, the location, and your timetable.
Designs That Don’t Compromise
Homeowners who are happy with basic and contemporary styles can opt for any of the in-house designs offered by builders.
At the end of the day, if a customised dream home is your goal, then it’s worth spending for. Otherwise, a builder’s design will give you the best value for money, with a lot to spare.
