BAAhouse ensure the process is easy.. hear from the experts
Starting a new project / building a house or renovating can be a daunting task. There can be so many obstacles, conflicting advice from various people, uncertainty which consultants or builders to use and how much the project going to cost.
Before you start any construction project you need professional advice in understanding your site, knowing your local council requirements, how the new design is going to tie into your existing structure, understanding the process and what can be achieved.
At BAAHOUSE, unlike many other companies specialising in residential design and second dwellings, we conduct an onsite design consultation where we listen to your lifestyle needs while assessing the benefits and limitations of the site, the views, aspects, landscape and surrounds. This normally takes 2 hours at your property where we discuss all aspects of your project along with providing free hand sketches for you on site. One of our Designers will take you through the entire process of your job and will be transparent with costs and what can or cannot be achieved on your property.
