Yoop 6-Step Design And Build Home Improvement Process

Step 1: Your Dream

Everything begins with a conversation. Our favourite projects are the ones that start with your family and understanding the need or dream you are looking to achieve. A meeting in your home is essential so we can start to explore some initial ideas right away and open the door to what solutions might be possible.

Step 2: Scribbles

This is where the fun and adventure begins!  From our earlier discussions, the brief that we will help you to write, and a measured survey (if necessary) we draw up some initial options. Then, together with you and your family we start to unleash the magic of potential and narrow down which of these will best work for you. All of our customers love this part of the process, and so do we.

Step 3: Meet the builders

After decades in the construction industry we have worked with some great builders and can help you find someone who you can trust with your home. We will introduce you to a few, or you might have one or two of your own in mind, and we’ll get some ballpark costings on paper for you.  Important Note: Meeting some builders super-early in the process is key to getting the result that you want at the end.

Step 4: Planning

The first official stage is the planning approvals. Don’t worry, we will submit these on your behalf and chase them up until we get the OK.

Step 5: Building regulations

With a successful planning approval, a set of drawings is now required to achieve compliance with all the building rules and regulations. Once again, this is done by us, and not something that you need to worry about at all.

Step 6: Construction

Together we will have agreed on the materials and a plan of how everything will proceed. The construction stage is where we relay this information to your builder so they know what is going on too.
