Our research is not just confined to design; indeed we also ensure that we keep up to date on the latest construction methods as well as council regulations to ensure that the process from design to final construction is a seamless one.
Tegan has been hailed for her great client relations and good relationship between clients and the business are of paramount importance to her. Upon initial contact Tegan is more than happy to answer any queries you may have.

The schedule of fees will give you a detailed view into our costing allowing you to be clearly aware of what finances will be required at what times.

Once the concept ideas have been collated and the design has evolved from your feedback sample plans and perspective images will be sent to you. We will also organise a three dimensional presentation that is to take place within the comfort of your own home.
At this presentation we are able to use our 3D software to allow you to better visualise the spaces we have created. We will walk you through the plans, ideas and key design features. This process allows you get a better feel for your design allowing the project to really come alive for you.
After the Presentation we leave you with a paper copy of your design and give you time to digest it. We value your feeback and work closely with you if you have any changes you would like to make or any further ideas you would like to implement.
Once your design is finalised it is time to send out your project for cost estimates. It is completely your decision as to whether you would like to use our builder or source one of your own.
If the price comes back higher than what you were hoping for we will modify your design free of charge until it meets your requirements. This is one of a number of Guarantees that Tegan Louise Designs will bring to your project to allow you to feel safe and secure.
Any built project will require council approval before building can commence. Council’s in Perth generally implement a practice that involves the following 2 steps:
At the planning stage you will be required to show floor plans and elevations as well as a site contour survey. Tegan Louise designs haa contact with a number of surveying companies and can hence source this survey for you to save you the time. Alternatively you can source the survey yourself if you wish.
To achieve building approval the council require a full set of construction drawings. They will also require engineering details and energy efficiency assessments which again Tegan Louise Designs can source for you. Builder’s details and insurances will also be required at this stage.
We will ensure that you have everything you need to submit to council when applicable and will liaise with the council on your behalf to ensure that your project is given approval. Should the council require any changes we will amend the design free of charge.
Once your project receives final council approval it is time for the building to get underway. Tegan and her Team will remain in close contact with you throughout the process and will be readily available to answer any queries yourself or the builders may have. Generally Tegan will visit the building site to ensure that everything is running smoothly and to give her assistance if need be. Once your project is complete we would love to opportunity to photograph it for our portfolio - and possibly to submit the project for a highly coveted design award. Show more
