Concept to reality: Renovating vs buying a new home

When extending or renovating your home, you have the opportunity to rectify areas that don’t function as they should. Modifying your existing house can be a cost-effective solution that allows your family to stay in a home they have come to love, while making it ideal for the way you want to live. With our 3D modelling and rendered drawings, you can even visualise your dream furnishings and finishes in situ!

Residential drafting

At Design Plus Drafting we understand the language Sydney councils use, so we can draft home designs, extension plans and drawings for renovations that are tailored to your exact requirements while adhering to your planning authority’s guidelines.

Hiring a draftsman is a great, cost effective alternative to an architect.

Development Applications

If you’re thinking of building a house, demolishing one, renovating, extending or subdividing, you’re probably going to need to lodge a development application with local council

Call us if you need any information on a Development Application.

3D modelling

Design Plus Drafting creates 3D digital models to scale using Revit and AutoCAD software, to form renderings that let you clearly visualise home improvements and see what the finished product will look like before work has even begun.

Our Revit specialist draftsmen create beautiful 3D renderings that bring mood boards to life.

Cheap and Cheerful?

How often have you heard, “You get what you pay for”?

When is a draftsman not a draftsman..?

Er, when she’s a draftswoman – awkward, much! We’re not a male-only crew here at Design Plus Drafting, so when customers come into our Newtown HQ for their drawings for renovations and development applications, they sometimes stumble over what to call us in a gender-neutral way. “Draftsperson” seems way too clunky and try-hard. That’s why […]
