Just a quick heads-up that I will be doing a small number of home visits to a limited number of Sydney homeowners to help provide pre-renovation, planning, design and building advice that is sympathetic to the style of their homes between the 11th and 14th May 2021.  As we will be road-tripping there and back (not quite confident enough to fly yet) it will also provide an opportunity for those people along the Hume Highway to get a home visit if we can get the timing right.

At the moment there are only four appointments remaining available in Sydney. Most have already been booked as a result of the postponed trips that didn’t end up happening in Sydney in 2020.
This is part of a service offered by Secret Design Studio called “Dr Retro House Calls” and is designed to help people take the next step in their renovation journey, especially those suffering “Analysis Paralysis” with the thousands of decisions that need to be made. I suspect that the service may have even saved a few marriages!

These photos are some of my clients’ homes from my previous (pre-COVID) Sydney consultations prior to their renovations. You can read about them here:

Each appointment is about two hours duration so we get to cover a lot, and are at either 10:30am or 2:30pm.

For Melbourne clients there are a few “Dr Retro House Call” appointments available in the last half of May, with good availability in June and July. So if you postponed your appointment in 2020, as it was all too hard,  now is the time to book….

For Brisbane, Canberra, Adelaide and Hobart people there are no plans to travel at this stage, but the “Dr Retro Virtual Visit” service via Zoom is available.  This service is available Australia wide for regional cities and rural areas, providing you have a reasonable internet connection.
