DON’T GET LOCKED IN!

This means you will have to accept that builders construction quote without question, or pay the builder a hefty fee (sometimes $10,000 or more per unit/dwelling!) to release the copyright on the plans in order to shop around for the best build price.

  • The service I have received from Michael and his team is second to none. I don't hesitate in referring DSB to any of my clients or friends.

  • We consulted with Michael Sheppard after another architect said that we were not able to build two townhouses on our land. Michael easily made this happen. He was amazing - very professional and extremely helpful and very knowledgeable. He made the design and approval process go very smoothly and all objections were easily amended and resubmitted. The only negative aspect is that I wanted 3 bathrooms with 3 baths, which he included as per my request, I now realise that it would have been better to have just one bath and more cupboards instead on the 2 additional baths, but this was my choice. I have friends who built around the same time as me, my experience (because of Michael) was so much easier. I will highly recommend him.
