Your renovation, addition or extension starts with a concept followed by clear plans. Creative Homeplans specialises in designs that will work for you. We are proud to make our clients so happy that they spread the word about us. Let us guide you through the process, so you know exactly what to expect.

The team at Creative Homeplans were very friendly and professional. They listened to our requirements and came up with innovative choice of solutions.

Whether you give us a buzz, send an email or inquire via this very website, the first step is always to make contact. We promise to get back to you quickly, communication is one of our strong points.

Next up is the obligation-free meeting.
We’ll drop in for an informal chat to discuss the all-important details of your project, this is where we listen and take notes!
We will also walk around, take a few photos and discuss budget, wish list and must-have.


Following this meeting, we will prepare some design concepts for presentation. We welcome your input during the presentation stage and believe it is important for you to be involved in the design process.

We will discuss the concepts, make any changes required and present a detailed quotation to draft the drawings. We pride ourselves on putting a lot of thought into our concepts and quotations, taking every detail into consideration. We will also advise on any consultant’s services that may be required.


An integral step in the process involves a detailed site survey completed by a registered land surveyor. We’ll also need a section 149 ( a council document) at this time and can assist with arranging these items.
Once we have the detailed survey in hand and you’ve approved the concept drawings and our quotation, the design team will develop things further. We’ll transfer the details to CAD software (computer aided drawing) developing the concept drawings based on your individual brief, doing what we do best.


Once the design team has developed the concept to a lodgement-ready stage we’ll sit down again and make any last minute adjustments that may be needed, making sure you are completely satisfied.


This is the time where we prepare the documents required to lodge your DA or CDC application, along with development reports that may be required.

We will also compile any external reports that were required.


Once lodgment is done, it is time to complete the detailed construction drawings and put together a PC (prime cost) list and start detailing the finer points of your dream. The more documentation strung together here, the less chance of mistakes or cost variants during the build stage.


After the construction permit has been issued, the fun really begins. With your chosen builder on site, the concept begins to take on its physical form.

This is undoubtedly the most exciting part of the process.


For your peace of mind, we offer independent building inspections. This is a chance to double-check that your builder is sticking to the brief and is really capturing the design intent of the project.
We also offer full project management upon request.


We are happy to provide a final inspection service and compile any corrections/defects list, requiring remedying.

MOVING IN TIME! Enjoy your new dream home.
