Home Work

Home Work is a one-off service for people who want to truly understand their options before committing to a home renovation project. It’s designed to answer questions such as:

  • How much will my extension cost?
  • Can we afford to modernise a house we're thinking of buying?
  • How feasible is it to add a new kitchen or bathroom?
  • Where should we start with our renovation project?
  • How long will it take?

The Home Work exercise helps you evaluate costs, risks and opportunities before investing large amounts of time and money.

Your personalised architectural consultation and report

During a virtual consultation in your home over Zoom, one of our experienced award-winning architects will discuss your property and explore your main concerns and aspirations. This allows you to answer all your questions, get our insights from other projects and understand your options.

Following the session, you’ll receive a personalised report that includes:

  • Overviews of planning constraints and precedents
  • Layout ideas and options for your extension or interior based on your brief
  • Relevant examples of similar projects
  • Construction cost plans, based on current material and labour costs
  • Guidance on consultants you may need to hire and how to budget for your full project
  • Realistic timescales – from initial ideas to completion

Flexible costs and commitment

The Home Work Service is suitable for any budget and is especially useful if you’re unsure whether working with a local residential architect is the right choice for you. 

Following the service, we can help take your home renovation through to planning, or you can take your favourite layout to your trusted builder. While working with us will add value and minimise risks, you may also want to use the report to help manage the project yourself.
