“An extremely accommodating and flexible approach, both conceptually and practically. I loved that I felt zero pressure which allowed a more ‘free form’ approach and workshopping ideas. I actually found the session very inspiring, informative and helpful moving forward, awesome value!!!”

— Carolyn

What is a Winter Warmer? 

Over July and August we are running our 2022 Winter Warmers.  In these 90 minutes we aim to help you get the basics right – from environmental considerations, colour & material ideas, to planning and spatial problem solving. Our follow up video spells out the outcomes of our discussion and arms you with what you need to think about, who you need to contact and any other tips or tricks we can give you.

How much does it cost?

A Winter Warmer will cost you $550 including GST.

100% of the proceeds will be donated to Rize Up Australia who work with the families impacted by domestic violence.  Read more about this AMAZING charity HERE.

If you feel like you get a lot of value from the session and would like to give more to the work of Rize Up you can let us know and we can organise an additional donation. Our goal is to raise $5,100 which furnishes a home for a family establishing a new life.

Who does this suit?

These sessions will suit people who:

  • want advice on improving the energy efficiency of their home
  • have had plans drawn up but are nervous about costs
  • don’t know whether to renovate or demolish and build new
  • don’t have a big budget but want to know what could be achievable
  • live in south-east Queensland

What will I get?

Our Winter Warmer includes:

  • our time to do a desktop review of your brief and property prior to our meeting 
  • two of us for 90 minutes via zoom or face to face
  • a photocopy of any sketches created during the session
  • a video follow up summarising the discussion and our ‘where to from here’

Recommendations will include:

  • what you can & can’t do on your site
  • what your project might cost
  • how long design & building might take
  • design planning advice
  • what consultants your project will require

When and where can I book?

What do I need to bring?

Please bring along anything you have in relation to your project.  Prior to our meeting we will have done a desktop study on your site or home from the address you give us in the booking.  A list of ideas of things to bring include:
