Post War Home Renovations – The Architect Difference

If you’re looking to renovate a post war 1940’s to 1960’s style home in Brisbane then you really need to consider using an architect. Houses built in Brisbane between the 1940’s – 1960’s tended to be on the conservative side and took the practical approach in terms of their designs. However, they are not without potential as you will see from the images in our Post War Home Gallery.

It’s important that before you begin your renovation you get the right advice and information to progress you from the research stage into the analysis stage of Pre-Design. To assist you through this we have created informative guides that provide you with the information you need before you get something designed. Two guides most useful for Post War home renovations are the ultimate Project Planning Pack and 7 Mistakes To Avoid When Renovating guides.

The Project Planning Pack is the ultimate workbook for this type of renovation because it will help you reduce your project’s risk and improve the design (cost guides!). The 7 Mistakes To Avoid When Renovating is very useful as it will run through where to start, what research to do and what you need to consider before you begin.

To download these guides please use the links below and enter your details. If you live in Australia we can also post the chosen guide to you so that you have a hardcopy on hand (especially useful for the Project Planning Pack workbook).
