Richard & Rachel

Our experience through the design process was exceptional. Graeme was very helpful and gave us a lot of ideas for our design.

Steve & Judy

Distinct Building Design (DBD) were one of two companies we contacted to design our new home. We selected them on the basis that they fully…

understood our requirements for a two-storey,3-bedroom home which left plenty of room for a back garden. They submitted an initial design which, by and large, is the home we ended up with. DBD recommended bathroom and kitchen designers as well as suppliers of tiles and all other hardware as the build progressed. They were very pro-active, with the design, during the construction period. The result was a wonderful home that we are extremely pleased with and would be happy to recommend DBD to other prospective users.

Chris & Sue

We contacted Graeme Bakker to inspect the site and seek design ideas before committing to purchase the property. We discussed on site…

how the steep slope and the granite rock on the site were design constraints and what needed to be addressed. Graeme created a concept based on the orientation of the site, personal lifestyle requirements and budget. We were very impressed with the very first plan and gave Graeme the go-ahead to draw up the contract.

FROM CONCEPT TO COMPLETION, WE’RE
WITH YOU EVERY STEP OF THE WAY!

Getting Started at Distinct Building Design is as Simple as 1, 2, 3

STEP 1 | THE CONCEPT

Share your ideas with an expert designer and collaborate on the layout, functionality and look of your brand new home.

Now is your chance to let your imagination run wild and suggest every possibility for your dream house.

We’ll work through every square foot, from kitchen to garage, bathrooms to balconies, to align ourselves with your vision.

STEP 2 | THE DESIGN

Your home designer Graeme Bakker is also a fully certified carpenter and building supervisor with decades of experience creating stunning properties in Port Stephens, the Hunter and beyond.

When designing your property, Graeme will add his own practical ideas to ensure the final outcome suits your space and is within your budget.

You feel informed every step of the way and will have the chance to review, revise and add suggestions.

Once your design is complete, we will take you through the selections process to choose the kitchen design, colours, finishes, fittings and fixtures options that meet your budget requirements. We can also help with council approval, bushfire checks and more.

STEP 3 | THE BUILD

Our job is not done on sign-off!

Distinct Building can connect you with our recommended builders or you can bring your own to complete your beautiful new home exactly the way you want it.

We work closely with the home building team to ensure it matches the designs, will be built to perfection and doesn’t go over budget.
