    CHOOSE A STAND

     1 week

    Who came first – chicken or the egg? builder or the architect? We say the informed customer came first! Buying a stand is all about $, size, layout (NorthEastSouthWest facing?), servitudes, estates rules & architectural guidelines – your builder & architect needs to know their stuff.

    WHICH ARCHITECT?

    2 weeks or more

    How much will he charge for MY idea? single or double storey? Plastered walls or Facebrick, Wood or Aluminium doors & windows? How do I minimise Yearly & Monthly Maintenance? Green Footprint -solar geyser? gas geyser? heatpump? gas stove? Grey water system? Insulation? Cavity walls? Double glazing windows? Underfloor heating or Gas Fireplace? How many bedrooms & ladies how much cupboard space is enough?, bathroom layout & sanitary ware that saves water? Living & Entertainment? Bar? Study? Garage & Storage? Servants quarters? Future possibilities for extension like a extra room or swimming pool? Where is what light installed and what light switches goes where? How high is my shower head and how wide is my bath – will it fit practically like the architect indicated? Cornice mould? Skirting size? Type of Floor & Wall tile? Bedrooms – carpets or laminates? Kitchen planning & layout? wall color choices? #&%$ this is too much!!
