To ensure your build goes according to plan, you’ll definitely want to consider bringing in the experts. A capable designer and a builder with the right experience and work ethic can make all the difference.

Why you should consider a designer

Bringing a designer on board at the earliest stages of your project means you have someone who:

  • Can design the space to fit your needs.
  • Has industry contacts.
  • Knows how to budget for a project.
  • Knows how to handle the legal requirements.

Finding the right person

When it comes time to hire a designer, there are a few things you can do to ensure you find the right person:

  • Ask around to find the best people in your area.
  • Get family and friends to recommend someone they’ve worked with.
  • Search potential candidates online to see if they’ve got a website.

Why you need to find the right builder

Unless you plan on renovating your home yourself, chances are you’ll need to get someone in who knows their way around a toolbox.

In addition to the actual construction, a builder can:

  • Help you with local council requirements and restrictions.
  • Find out what permits you need
  • Work with you to put a project schedule together.
  • Find other qualified tradespeople – if required.
