SERVICES

A summary of my packages and rates are below. All projects are assessed on a case-by-case basis depending on the scale and scope of the works being proposed. After an initial meeting Sarah will provide a fee proposal as the costs may depend on what works need to be undertaken and what approvals are required.

If you are unsure what direction you wish to take get in touch with Sarah and book in a complimentary meeting to discuss your needs and how our packages work. If you wish to have a detailed consult before signing up with Sarah please book in our One-Off Design Consult service, if you proceed with further work a discount will be applied towards your fees. 

We work closely with a local Building & Landscaping company, if you use them for the implementation of my designs you will have me as your liaison throughout the entire process. You can view their work here: www.branchingoutco.com.au

One-Off Design Consult

Do you need some advice and tips from a designer? For example, advice on where the best place to put your furniture, tips on where to source pieces to complete your home, advice on colour and styling but with no need for detailed or computer drafted plans.

I can also provide this as a landscape design service - with a site visit to discuss your needs, suggestions for outdoor furniture and decor, a rough sketch plan to illustrate layout changes, suggestions of plants that will work in your garden. This is ideal for someone wanting a small garden makeover, planning to do the work themselves but needing a bit of guidance.

​A one-off consult will give you up to 2 hours of my time at your home to share my expertise with you, a follow up email summarising what we have discussed and a rough sketch plan if required. If you then decide to proceed with a larger project you will receive a discount against your final bill.

I can also assist with sourcing furniture, decor pieces, plants etc. if required - see Additional Services below for more details.

Cost: from $180

Floorplan Drafting & Design Services

If you are planning for renovation works (interior and/or exterior), Sarah can provide a design and drafting service to create plans for a builder to work from. Sarah works closely with Branching Out Co. however we can work with other tradesmen if you have preferred trades who you wish to use.

 

Our package includes an on-site consultation to discuss your wants and needs and to view the space, simple site measurements, creation of a base plan and initial rough plans to come up with a design that fits your needs, creation of computer drafted plans, design guidance throughout the project, basic material selection advice and a follow-up consult on site.

 

For projects being constructed by Branching Out Co. you will also have the benefit of additional site meetings as required throughout the job at no additional cost.

This assumes you have access to property plans (or they can be sourced from council) to scale as a starting point for me – I can take additional measurements on-site as required but if a full site measure is required there may be additional charges. If a full site plan is required then a surveyor may also need to be engaged at an additional cost.

If you are not sure yet how you want to proceed, I offer a concept plan service which consists of an initial meeting to discuss your needs and view the space, a quick measure of the space/s you are looking at and drafting of a simple floorplan that shows how the space would be laid out. I can also provide elevation drawings to help you visualise the space for an extra cost - see pricing below. If you then were to proceed with a full drawing package I will apply a discount towards the package rate.

Costs:

Concept plans - these costs are for smaller works eg. a kitchen and living space, not a larger renovation project. If you are unsure where your project would fit please get in touch with Sarah to discuss further.

Initial concept plan - $250

Initial concept plan + 1-2 elevation drawings - $320

Full plan drafting, suitable for a builder to use for construction for works not requiring council approval, DA or CDC.

*Note – for smaller spaces (e.g. just a kitchen or a bathroom)

a fee proposal will be provided

For works requiring council approval, DA or CDC Sarah will provide a formal quote for drafting services.

Additional Services

Sarah can also provide a range of other services, generally charged at an hourly rate unless agreed otherwise. These services can be provided as a stand-alone service or in conjunction with one of our design packages. There is a minimum 1 hour charge for all services. If you are looking for something not included here please contact Sarah and we can discuss your requirements.

 

Alterations to existing plans - from $500

Simple alterations are included in your drafting package however for complex or detailed amendments there is an additional fee to cover the extra hours required. Sarah will confirm the fee for the amount of changes required prior to commencing any work.

Detailed materials selection advice

Sarah will complete a detailed material selection process for you including sourcing various samples to come up with a shortlist, visiting showrooms with you to determine the best choice and coordinating the order & delivery of the materials. 

Sarah will provide a quote based on the amount of sourcing required.

Furniture/furnishings recommendations and sourcing

Sarah will come up with a range of product recommendations to create the style you desire in your home within an allocated budget from a range of stores including trade-only suppliers. I will present these to you in a specification document and you can source yourself or I can also manage the ordering and delivery of your selected items including ensuring correct placement of items.

Sarah will provide a quote based on the amount of sourcing required.
