"Darren from Wise Drafting has been a great asset to our project. I’ve been firing off questions as we start to nail down details and he’s been firing back nicely detailed answers to help me make up my mind on aspects of the building. When he sees the opportunity to involve some ideas I’m not aware of he fires off an email that explains the benefits along with links to the products for me to further look into. You have to appreciate someone with his attitude towards delivering us the best package he can and his willingness to set my thinking back on the right course. I certainly appreciate his efforts and if you need a draftsperson who is a thinker and will give your project the best outcome, you should talk to Darren as well"

What I appreciated about Darren's work was the faithfulness in reproducing exactly what I wanted as a building plan, and his knowledge of the building regulations and what was acceptable to the council.

Having worked with one large building company before I appreciated that working with Darren sped things up in getting the plans to the council for approval, the drawings could go direct to me, then to the council, whereas previously months were added in the approval stage, as the plans had to go from me, to the builder, to the designer, back to the builder, to me, then to the builder, then to the council, and follow the same route back. When this happens 3 or 4 times due to builder or architect error in what the council finds acceptable, it takes up to a year, just for approval. So I felt like I had more control and more input working with Darren, and it was definitely faster.

What attracted me to choosing Darren as the designer, was the fact that I could see from his previous designs that he had a willingness to work with new materials, and I could see from his previous plans that he could design anything from simple to grand, to something with architectural significance, an overall flexibility.
Working with Darren allowed me to be flexible in breaking down the stages of the design process, as my circumstances needed a period of time in getting through a subdivision of a piece of land, as the first step, then when this was done, refining the building plans.

When one material we planned to use became unavailable we even managed to do a full structural change along the way, with ease. This all really fitted in with what I was doing, was reasonable priced, and fast.

Thanks Darren, for all your help and expertise.

Yours, Adrian

   Home design and extension / renovation plans

Home design drawings need to be a balance between economy and style, great looks and function. We work with you to establish what you want and guide you with choices in the design process so that your new home or renovation is practical but also stylish and unique.
When building you need to be in control of what you want and you can be the creator of something you dreamed of.
We design homes in many different materials such as light weight cladding, classic brick veneer, and other veneer claddings, but also such materials as Timbercrete, poured earth and straw bale.
We assist by managing the approval process and engineering or advising you of the approval process and engineering referral.
