08 Nov 3 Things Good Draftees Do (and Should Do)
Draftees are people whom you don’t usually see in action and don’t really care about, but can significantly make or break your dream house plans. That’s why it’s not a stretch to include them in your assessment of designers, builders, and other companies to hire for building your home. Here are a few qualities you might consider looking for.
They See Your House as a Home (Even as Their Own Home)
In order to understand what a homeowner wants or why they want it, good draftees imagine the interior spaces of a house from the point of view of a homeowner. Like a visitor that enters a house for the first time, they check if hallways are spacious enough for two-way traffic, if important rooms in the house are easily accessible to all occupants (if there are even doors to begin with), or if certain areas in the house provide the right ambience–does the living area have enough windows for sufficient sunlight, are the bedrooms cozy and private enough to rest in?
They Care About the Construction Flow
Draftees rarely go on site, so the tendency to miss out on important details relevant to actual construction is always there. To avoid this, good draftees have the knowledge of construction process, workers skills and techniques, and state or regional regulations. They ensure that what they draw is buildable and as accurate as possible to avoid errors which leads to additional expenses. They make life easier for builders, homeowners, and even the council and surveyors.
They Care About Your Budget
Having a house built in Australia is expensive. Even small lot home projects can be costly if errors in drafting and construction are not eliminated. No one wants to pay for errors and reliable draftees know this well. Training and inspiration can be the key in building up draftees who are empathising with their clients. Draftees who check quotes and regulations, then communicate concerns and ask for confirmations to clients regarding their product and building material choices are not easy to find. But they are out there and working hard to incorporate values in their jobs.
Overall, good draftees are worth your time and money as long as they have the right vision and attitude in providing quality and efficient work for businessmen and homeowners alike.
