Recipe for a successful project...

CONTACT THE DESIGN MILL

You decide to call The Design Mill for an initial obligation-free chat with Julie. Julie will happily answer any queries that you have and will offer to visit you in the comfort of your own home for an obligation-free chat about your design project.

QUOTATION

Based on the above meeting, Julie will email you a comprehensive fee schedule. This will outline the discussions on site in regards to design, alternatives and ideas. This assures you that I have listened carefully to your requirements. The fee schedule outlines the costs and services we can provide.

COUNCIL APPROVAL

Your project will certainly require council approval. Most areas in Perth have a two-step process:

  1. Planning approval (development approval) which requires a site contour survey, floor plans, elevations, shadow diagram.

  2. Building approval which requires full documentation, plans, engineering, builder’s details, insurances etc.

The Design Mill team will arrange the council required documentation and liaise on your behalf to gain the approvals

COFFEE MEETING

Julie will give you honest advice in regards to design and construction. She will always challenge you and show you alternative ideas, yet will listen intently to your wishes and wants.

DESIGN

Should you choose to proceed, the schedule is signed and Julie starts on your design.

This is the stage our clients love as ideas and thoughts are transformed into designs. Unlike many other designers, we use 3D software together with virtual reality! so you can really get a feel for the design. Julie will leave the plans and model with you to digest. You can mark up any changes or ideas.

BUILDING

The building process shouldn’t be daunting. It is fun and exciting to see your ideas come to life.


Julie and her team will be with you every step of the way. If you need any information on-site, clarification on the plans or help with colours then we will be here to help.

RESEARCH

Julie and her team will conduct the necessary research in terms of council requirements, codes and compliance. to aim for a smooth and stress-free process.

COST

Once your design is finalised you can either use your own builder or our fabulous and friendly builders to check the costings. Your plans, your choice.

If your price comes back higher than the budget we discussed we will modify your design free of charge. Our design guarantee.
