Don’t hire a building designer first – It could be a big mistake

Would you like to save thousands on your new home? Here’s a valuable design tip…

I know it sounds counter-intuitive. But before you look for a building designer to design your home, choose your builder.


Well, did you know 80% of architectural plans never come to fruition?

You see, a building designer focuses on what a home will look like. The design. The problem is, they rarely factor in the costs. So what you end up with is a design that can quickly become…

Very Expensive to Build

Think about it: building designers are trained to be visionaries. They ‘live’ to create the ‘perfect house’. That’s what you pay them for. But, they are not always focused on the practicalities of building — how much extra time and money certain design elements may take.

And the reality is, they get paid for the design they create whether you end up using it or not.

There is a way to fuse vision with the practicalities of building. With a few small modifications, you can often achieve the same ‘design result’ for a lot less money.

When your builder and building designer work together, you get the best of both worlds…

  • A design that is beautiful and functional
  • And a design that is affordable to build

So it’s best to choose a builder first. They will be able to provide the right building designer and then work together.
