Based in Frankston, Margot knows how to create a plan that will best suit a family and take advantage of solar aspect, views, garden and local features. Margot designs kitchens, laundry, bathrooms, renovations, extensions and/or new homes and can create scaled plans for comparison. Working independently of builders and cabinet makers she says:
"Though my drawings are not working/construction drawings, they contain abundant detail for tradesmen to quote. Clients can then compare the information of several companies."
Margot itemises materials, finishes, brands and even colours if required. Her fee for a standard, in situ stand alone kitchen design plan and elevations starts at just $400. Qualified in Architectural Drafting, Margot does the all important design and planning. Adding a 'woman's touch', listening, incorporating hobbies and interests, she covers all the 'what if's.'
"I can see how a home will work best for the family, and I convert that to drawings which the client owns giving them control of their works."
