Re: Alterations and Additions at 70 Del Monte Place. Copacabana
Karen and I would just like to thank you for the plans you have recently drafted for the extensions we have planned for our home. Your professional and friendly manner made the process a pleasure and the detailed results you have produced look fantastic and we can't wait to have our "new" home completed.
In particular we'd like to express our thanks for the design advice and the building industry knowledge you were able to bring to the process. This has been a signifigant help for us in choosing materials and in making smart choices in the layout of the new house. Ideas such as positioning the new rooms and wondows and sizing the eaves to make the most of the sun and the views available on the property, laying out the bathrooms with consideration of where to position towels and laundry baskets, and many other aspects considered with similar forethought, will all greatly add to the overall appeal and comfort of our home and I'm sure will translate into a higher resale should we ever want to move.
Also I was astounded at the number and complexity of documents that the council required for our submission. the Application for Approval, The Application Statement, the Addendumm to the Specification, the connection of House drainage document,\ and the Waste Management Plan, BASIX Certificate and Bushfire report were all a bit overwhelming. Your help through this minefield of council bureaucracy was excellent. We'd still be struggling with this now without the work you did in this regard.
Similarly your advice on how to go about getting competitive quotes from builders will be a great benefit and probably save us money when the time comes. Lastly your prices were very competitive compared to the other quotes we received and so we were very happy with this aspect also.
Once again, many thanks, you did a great job, and the best wishes for the future.
Peter and Karen Tancred
