Step 1 - Shed House Design Ideas 

There are many great resources online now to help you create a mood board of ideas for your build. We recommend that you look through pinterest, google or our website and save the ideas you like. This information will help us understand the look and feel you are trying to achieve with your new shed house design.

Step 2 - Personal Needs

When you decide to build a new home or shed house you should consider how your family lives their daily lives and which spaces are most important. You should also consider the future if you are thinking of growing a into a home or downsizing to live a simpler life. You should also consider the property you are building your home on and who your potential buyer will be if you decide to sell in the future.

Personal Needs

Step 3 - Budget

For alot of people it is hard to pin down a budget for a project however it is important for us to understand your budget at this point.  This will ensure the design work and material specification we complete is aligned with your budget from the start. When creating a budget for your new home you should also consider how the build will affect the property value so you don't over capitalise. On rural properties you will also need to consider: Power, Water and Water Treatment systems in your budget.

Step 4 - Draft Plans

Once we understand your budget, needs and ideas we will complete a draft set of plans for your shed house design. Once these plans have been created we will meet again to discuss your likes and dislikes as well as consult our engineer if needed regarding the design. We include two rounds of changes so it is important to think about all aspects of the plan before requesting any changes.
