Customer Reviews

Mr K Louie & Ms L Edwards

Thanks so much to Wendy and Nicole and your office team. We've really enjoyed working with you and we appreciate your creativity, design flare in the creation of a really lovely house.... and not to mention your efficiency on all the incredibly complex paperwork. __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Mr & Mrs Isaac, Epping

During the process of requirements gathering, design and up to the DA approval, Wendy, Nicole and the whole team were extremely professional. Nicole's deep knowledge of the local council requirements made the council DA approval process pass without a hitch. Nicole also came up with a design that was simple and beautiful. The council heritage consultant approved the design on the spot after asking Nicole to make a minor change.  House Plans by Design was also cost competitive as the total cost of their service was 30% less than two other architects quotes we previously acquired. We highly recommend House Plans by Design to potential customers. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Mrs A Joergensen, Lindfield

We would highly recommend House Plans By Design, who helped us with the design of the extensions to our beautiful home. Nicole was great; she listened and followed our ideas to the T in order to create a design that really met our needs. Nicole also made it possible for us to obtain CDC which was approved within 2 weeks of being submitted. We are so happy with the outcome! They also made the administration of all the paper work very easy for us which was wonderful as this is the last thing you want to be left with to deal with on your own. Thanks again to the team at House Plans. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Mr E Chehab, Greenacre

I just want to say thank you for everything and it has been a pleasure to work with you in designing my new house plans, which i am very happy with and look forward in building in the next 6 to 12 months. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Mr D Mitchell, Roseville

We have been delighted with the service we have received from House Plans by Design. Nicole and the team have done an excellent job with our ideas, and created, what will be an excellent family home. Thank you for the great work!! _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Mr S Handfield, Newtown

Nicole designed extensive renovations of my home beginning of 2010. Her ideas provided brilliant solutions to the challenges of designing a practical home in which to raise a family while at the same time including features that make my new home a delight in which to live. Nicole managed negotiations with local Council for development approval and sourced a skilled, honest and reliable builder who completed the build on time and budget. I have heartily recommended Nicole as a designer to friends and colleagues and know that several have engaged Nicole and also been delighted with her work. I continue to be delighted to recommend Nicole to people looking for a designer with integrity, extensive experience and infectious enthusiasm for projects. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The house is almost finished and it looks absolutely fantastic.... I can't express my thanks enough to you for the wonderful design.  Each day when I drive home and see the progress it just keeps getting better and better.  It just looks like it belongs and does not look like a renovation.  We have done well with the colour and finishing touches. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
