Build in Common-180705-17

Unique project folder Toolkits for
any renovation or building project 

Our Build in Common Toolkits are the result of countless requests for help from people looking to renovate, build or develop small-scale property projects.

It always seems to start with: Where do I start? - What should I do first? - Who do I need to speak to?

Free Workshop: In this workshop, we will guide you through the process of taking your ideas for your home renovation or building project, and capture these into a powerful Project Brief for you to share with your builder, designer, architect or trades. 

Workshop Postponed

Given the rapidly evolving situation relating to COVID-19 in Australia and across the world, we have made the decision to postpone this event.

Please note we have no reported cases of Coronavirus at Build in Common, however, the ongoing wellbeing of our customers and community are very important to us.

We will be moving the workshop into the virtual world in a couple of weeks so you won't miss out.

Please register your interest via email to [email protected] with the subject "EOI Digital Project Toolkit".

"From beginners to builders, the Build in Common Toolkit has helped us gain the confidence to build our dream home. Before laying our hands on the guide we were procrastinating and unsure of what steps, questions or options we should explore. This simple to use project toolkit removed any ambiguity and gave us a logical framework to follow step by step with our builders saving us valuable time and money."

Add a little colour to your Easter

For the past couple of years, we have seen a trend with more people decorating for celebrations other than Christmas. And with Easter around the corner, our minds turn to Easter decorating. Admittedly this year’s egg hunts may need to be a little different and contained to the backyard, but that doesn’t mean we can’t…
