Have worked with the Design Spec team to develop plans for an upgrade to my home - input received on my initial plans has avoided me making some, potentially, costly choices. However the team have been very happy and responsive to include my wishes and ideas as the design developed - planning permission now received - Just need to find the right builder and let the work commence!

Their one-off payment is very convenient and simple for every thing from a customised 1 to 1 design consultation, planning, applications to BC, following up and communication/ feedback is excellent.
