Elsternwick, VIC


*** Ranked #1 out of 32 local drafting businesses on the Service Seeking website ***

I am an Australian Building Practitioner registered as an Architectural Draftsman.

I specialise in town planning, residential renovations and sub-divisions.

I can prepare a comprehensive full set of Architectural working drawings within 1 week and concept designs within a few days.

I prepare everything from concept design to tender documentation. You are under no obligation to use all my services. You can choose to stop at the end of the concept design stage.

I prepare a detailed no obligation fixed-fee proposal outlining all costs for the design stage. I also include costs for all the other consultants required (engineer, soil report, energy rater, building surveyor etc) prior to starting. This way you are aware of all the fees prior to starting..

My references will testify to my professionalism and promptness. I am always happy to meet and discuss further. For me communication is key.

"We found Rob's (Elements of Home) details online after a general google search for a renovation architect/consultant to help extend our home. There was just the 1 positive review for Elements of Home on the review site & based on that we met with Rob, as well as a couple of other companies over a 2 week period. Other designers we met with had trouble working with us to give us the design we were looking for to suit our lifestyle & existing home....they seemed more interested in promoting their own ideas alone. From the first meeting with Rob we felt very comfortable discussing our home extension plans & confident that he had a great ability to listen & translate our ideas in to a feasible plan for a build. Rob worked quickly to provide a set of plans we were happy with, before then arranging for all of our engineering & council requirements. He was able to recommend some builders to include in the tender process & we ended up going with one of the companies he suggested. We are ecstatic with the final design & physical end result of our transformed 1950's style home, Rob's design was brought to life by a great building team & the whole project ran very smoothly. Throughout the entire design process we received nothing but outstanding service, communication, honest consultations and advice from Rob. He was accommodating and attentive in providing any alterations we requested, which was really comforting and crucial to the amazing end result. Whether by phone, email or text Rob made himself available at any time, and we were never left waiting for a response. Rob is genuine, respectful and proud of his work and this is further enhanced by the obviously strong relationships he has with engineers, builders etc. Elements of Home can't be beaten for attention to detail, ongoing professionalism and service excellence. Everything Rob did turned out even better than we had imagined. For anyone thinking of building/extending we would highly recommend engaging Rob's services to assist with the design & plans before going ahead."

We were very pleased with Rob’s professionalism, patience and ability to listen to and interpret our needs. He collaborated very well with our interior designer and we are more than happy with his final plans. We would not hesitate to recommend Rob to anyone planning a renovation or a new build."
