Design & Construct

Envision Living will work with you on Your design and Construct your Dream Home!


1. Initial Consultation

You are invited along to an obligation free chat about your personal requirements and expectations for your new home.

We will offer you knowledgeable advice as to the best approach to achieve your goals and avoid potential pitfalls. Then we can start the exciting part… Design!

2. Concept floor plan

We start with a clean slate and together. With your ideas and our considerable expertise, we develop a Concept Sketch. This takes into consideration the specific requirements of your block, local building requirements and regulations and the way you want to live in your dream home.

The cost for this stage is $1,200 which is deducted from your fixed price contract, should you decide to build with our team (this includes up to 2 re-designs).

3. Plans and elevations

Once you are happy with your floor plan, we will finalise your construction plans, ready to submit for building approval. This includes detailed floor plans, side elevations, sectionals and other required design documents.

The cost for this stage is $2,500 which is deducted from your fixed price contract, should you decide to build with our team (this cost includes up to 2 designs revisions).

4. Preparation for fixed price contract

To finalise a fixed price all-inclusive quote, we need a few more details from you.

We will arrange a meetings to,

  • Collaborate with our designer to finalise joinery design and specifications
  • Meet with one of our interior designer partners to complete external finish selections, floor coverings and tile selection; and choose from either our Gold or Silver level inclusion packages

Once this has been completed, we will provide you a fully itemised quote. (But, don’t worry, you still have the freedom to change your mind on things such as appliances, tapware and more before contract signing).

At this stage you retain ownership of your plans and specifications.

The cost for this stage is $3,000 which will be deducted from your fixed price contract should you decide to build with our team.

5. Contract Signing

When you are happy with your design, inclusions and price, we can then move on to contracts.

We will prepare a Master Builders contract for your consideration.

Once contracts are signed, we can then begin the exciting job of starting to build your dream home. We will obtain building approval and all other requirements to commence construction.

6. Construction

This is where you get to sit back, relax and let our team do what we do best. We will invite you to join us to run you through our online system Co-Construct.

You will then have the freedom to review selections, keep up to date on the build and ask us any questions real time with all team members involved using the mobile app.
