Creating homes for the way
you live.

Design Process

At Designer Country Homes we believe each site has its own unique set of features and characteristics; from the direction of prevailing breezes to terrain and contours, views and privacy from adjoining neighbours to mention just a few. We see it as critical that these key aspects together with correct orientation for maximum passive solar benefits form a major part in the final form & function of your design.

There are 5 steps that we find to be typical of most Home Designs

Step 1 - SITE VISIT: Get to know each other, ideas and priorities.

With the above in mind we strongly suggest that the first step in the process is an obligation free visit to your site where we can walk the block and begin to understand your vision. It’s also a great way to get to know each other and toss around ideas in an informal setting while at the same time making note of the key aspects of your site.

Step 2 - CONCEPTUAL SKETCHES: What will your new home look like?

After walking your block each custom home design starts as a concept based upon your detailed brief and initial site visit with award winning designer John McInerney. Your specific needs and ideas will be carefully discussed and from these notes, conceptual sketches will evolve.

Step 3 - PRELIMINARY DESIGN: The design is refined.

Once an initial concept is established your ideas will be transformed into more formal scaled preliminary plans where the final design will be honed down and polished.

Step 4 - DESIGN SIGNOFF: The design is finalised and ready to build.

The outcome of the above process will be a detailed preliminary design which can then be documented into more formal Architectural working drawings and specifications from which the final home will be built.

Step 5 - SELECT BUILDER: How do we select the builder of our home?

At Designer Country Homes we firmly believe that you’re only as good as your partners. A proven track record in delivering a quality product with exceptional customer service is at the top of our criteria.

As independent design consultants for the JWH Group we are not only able to provide our clients with large volume builder prices but also the security and well established customer service of one of WA’s largest and most highly awarded building groups.

The various operations within this group include Oswald Homes, The Rural Building Company and WA Country Builders. This means we have all areas from Geraldton in the Midwest to Albany in the Great Southern and just about anywhere else in between covered.

Of course, if you have another builder in mind, we are also very happy to simply provide you with the final Architectural documentation to allow that process to happen.
