So, you want to do it yourself…

Articulate Build Consulting

for Custom Builds or Renovations

Standard, Sustainable and/or Off-Grid

A successful build or renovation starts with a good foundation, and I don’t mean the concrete; I’m talking about the “plan”, and no, not the papers that the builder works from either.

Meticulous planning and design are key, however it requires an in-depth look at you/your family/partner(s)/etc.

Discovery of your; budget, lifestyle, location, wants, needs, likes, dislikes, safety, security, lighting and entertainment needs, comfort and preparation for future growth/downsizing, are all paramount in a successful build or renovation.

Seemingly unimportant things such as illuminating your bathroom, where to put keypads for the security system or the doorbell (an/or button) or which way a door will open, all make HUGE differences in the grand scheme of things, but most people NEVER plan for those details in advance – more often they are left to the very last minute and create problems (often costly and time consuming – they add up!).

Proper profiling should bring those and numerous other details to light, but very few builders, designers or architects possess the multi-faceted experience and capability as ABC to do so. Most are good at what they do, “build”, “conceptualize” or “design”, but that’s where it ends. Many don’t know how to integrate and others want just to get their name on the project and get paid. Few truly care about the client’s wants/needs or know of the appropriate people, materials and technology required to get the job done, let alone harmoniously blending those elements.

That’s the job of the Build Consultant, and that’s what ABC does best!

Whether doing it all yourself or being the boss of the sub-trades, we can help.
