The journey we take together is an intimate one built on trust, respect and with all the love a home should embody.
In collaboration with you we create concepts and drafts of what your dream home will include. It has to be perfect.

Plans & Advocacy
Building a home isn't just about getting the design right. It's about managing contractors, getting Council approval and making sure your home adheres to all local council building codes and requirements.
We handle all the documentation and communications with Council on your behalf so you don't have to try and figure it out on your own or worry about anything.
To this end, we prepare all the plans and documents you'll need to submit your application for approval, and can help manage the whole project from start to finish.
We do all the planning required for your application including:
Architectural Plans (Site Plan, Floor Plans, Elevations and a Section), Site Analysis, Waste Management Plans, Basix/energy Assessment, and Mine Subsidence Board Plan stamping.
We liaise with council on your behalf to make sure the plans for your dream home are approved. We prepare all Council Application Documents (DA and CC) so that you don't have the stress of making sure your building adheres to local codes and remain the contact for all council enquiries.
As your liaison we work with council, contractors, builders and anyone else involved in making your new home a reality.
We handle all aspects of managing your new build or renovation project so it runs as smoothly as possible.
Sustainable home designs
Sustainable design is an intrinsic element in all of our homes.
The basics of orienting living spaces to the north, creating cross ventilation patterns, protecting windows and doors from summer sun, and many other standard design practices, are absolute requirements. Immersing these considerations in the design results in the home performing beautifully, with no additional construction cost required.
We are an Accredited Green Smart Design Firm and instinctively incorporate the principles of sustainability in all of our projects.
Seaside Homes will incorporate in your design solar passive design principles like the following, to create a beautiful and sustainable home:
Ideal positioning of the residence on the site
Creation of cross ventilation patterns
Maximising of thermal mass opportunities
Protection of glazing units from summer sun, whilst allowing winter access
Optimum specification of insulation
