But with floor-plans, material selections, colours, layouts, etc. it’s hard to know where to begin, and what’s possible?
Right now, you might be thinking…
This is why, with 23 years of building experience in both Europe and Australia, we’ve created our complimentary ‘Initial Design Concept’ to answer your questions and alleviate any concerns, so you can make the right decisions.
It doesn’t matter if you’re looking to upgrade your living room, kitchen, bathroom, garage, or outdoor kitchen space…
Or if you want a new granny flat, garage or carport…
With 23 years of building experience in both Europe and Australia, we can help you add style, warmth and value to your home. And most importantly, we go…
As a builder originating from Europe, we’ve noticed even though your home might meet Australia’s minimum standard regulations, you can still be left with:
1. European Standard Build Quality & Craftsmanship.
Scotland builder Arran knows European building practices intimately, which means you’ll get a renovation or extension built with meticulous attention to detail that will be the envy of your street.
2. Healthier Renovations & Extensions With Year Round Comfort
As a result of draft free additions that are comfortable all year round, everything is completely sealed and will never sweat, meaning you’ll avoid hidden mould and damp issues. This is critical if someone in your family suffers from respiratory conditions like asthma, as it ensures cleaner air.
3. Sole Focus of The Builder / Deal directly with the owner.
Unfortunately many larger builders are building dozens of homes at once, so you end up dealing with staff - not the owner. If you can’t find a builder who is willing to give your renovation or extension full priority attention, how can you be confident everything is on track? We only work on 1-2 homes at a time, so we can ensure your home is a priority.
4. A Methodical Approach, With No Inconvenience.
Before we even begin, your whole project is mapped out in our project management platform which includes every single detail down to the final inspection - so you can be assured the quality of workmanship in your renovation or extension will be in a league of its own.
5. We Ask the Questions No Other Builder Does.
We’ll work hand in hand with the architect, engineers and all the necessary consultants through your entire build process - and will ask the questions no other builder does to ensure you get precisely what you want from your renovation or extension, without having to compromise on your vision.
6. An Enjoyable Stress Free Experience From Day One.
Building can be a stressful time, which is why our relationship is our first priority, including open communication.
7. Transparent Pricing, Processes and Project Management.
We’ll price your project with specific, itemised precision so you know everything has been accounted for upfront. Openness and transparency are the foundation of trust, which is why you’ll receive a thorough explanation of our process and regular, consistent updates throughout the build.
1. Free Initial Design Concept Call & A ‘Back of The Envelope’ costing
We’ll help you understand what to expect, and answer any questions and concerns you have about your extension or renovation. What’s more, we’ll get an overview of your vision, finding out exactly where you’re at, what you’d love to create and providing a rough idea of the investment required to achieve that dream. Either over the phone or via zoom it’s a complimentary call, with no obligation.
2. Face to Face Meeting, Site Inspection and Planning Session
Sit down over a cuppa with Arran onsite to explore what’s possible for your home, refine your vision, and go step by step through our construction process. Once we both have a clear idea of what’s required, we’ll refine the cost estimate, and at your own pace you can let us know if you’d like to go ahead.
3. Concept Sketches, 3D Renders & a More Detailed Estimate Update
At this point we’ll document everything - your ideas, concept drawings and 3D renders along with preliminary agreements. This allows us to begin the necessary surveys, soil tests, engineering quotes and considerations, and gather all the information required to create your new dream home.
4. Final Design Review and Fixed Price Estimate
It’s time to recap the entire process, apply for the necessary permits and create the final documents, plan drawings and agreements to move forward. We’ll also work with external third parties (on factors like soil, engineering and architecture), and your building contract (which includes all your selections, designs and specs) will be signed off on and prepared for council submission.
5. Building Of Your Dream Home Commences
Put up your feet and relax knowing it’s time for us to go to work for you. We’ll handle every detail, from bringing our own site bathrooms, to handing over your completed home in 6-18months (depending on the complexity). We’ll supply regular updates and you can follow our custom construction process in real time via your portal to our online project management system.
It’s The First Step On The Journey to renovating or extending to create a breathtaking home you can’t wait to show off at your next family BBQ.
This is the most direct path to getting more information, asking all your questions and getting to know us and how we can support you including:

You have nothing to lose and everything to gain. This is simply an opportunity for us to get to know each other, and see how we can assist you to create your dream home.
