When do I have to involve my local council in my building plans?
Your local council website should have guidelines for renovations or new builds on your property. However, we can help to navigate this process regarding all approvals; council, building, drafting or engineering.
A renovation is taking your existing building or property and transforming that into something new. This could be as simple as extending your deck to completely changing the internal/external structure of the existing home!
- Changing a room size (taking out or adding walls)
- Relocation of room/s
- Anything that requires modifying an existing element
Will I have to leave my home while renovations are being completed?
At My Story Co. we make every effort to minimise the amount of disruption to your life and daily routines throughout the project. We clean up daily after our work.
However, there are going to be situations where it will not only be of benefit for you to move out, but it will actually be a legal requirement due to workplace health and safety. Your safety and well being are our number one priority at all times.
Depending on the size of the project and the materials we are working with, we may require you to leave your home or property for a short time - this may be a day up to six weeks. If this is necessary, we will clearly communicate the dates with plenty of time to plan your alternative accommodation.
