About Etchells

Etchells Building Design is a family owned business specialising in residential design. We provide a complete and professional building design service for owner builders, property developers and building companies, covering Sydney, the Central Coast and Hunter regions. Etchells has extensive experience in new dwellings, additions, alterations and dual occupancy.

Our aim is to create beautiful homes that enhance and complement our client’s lifestyle, with an emphasis on functionality and efficient use of space. Good design doesn’t necessarily cost more but is essential in realising your dream home and nurturing your investment. Our homes have great aesthetics, are practical and imaginative, but just as importantly they work within your budget.

Etchells is a passionate advocate of environmentally sustainable design and we consider this factor in all our projects. It’s not just about minimising the environmental impact of your build, there are significant savings to be made by designing to exploit natural heating and cooling and incorporating renewable energy systems. We are also mindful of the materials we recommend with an aim to avoid anything with potential effects to your health and to also minimise waste. Our aim is that a sustainable design should save you money in the long run and provide you with a home that is resilient and adaptable.

We use the latest computer technology to create three dimensional models of your home, an exciting process that allows you to see the building come to life. We provide documentation coordination and administrative services for your build and we have a network of professionals whose services we can recommend.

Megan & Craig

Husband and wife team, Megan and Craig Etchells, both studied Architectural Technology, meeting when they worked together for a prominent project building company. After over ten years in the industry Megan and Craig started their own practice, Etchells Building Design. Etchells has now been designing residential projects for over ten years, specialising in new builds and renovations.

Craig started out in construction before studying, giving him a thorough knowledge of the building process. He then went on to work with several large design companies before starting his own business. At Etchells Craig tends to be the visionary and loves the cutting-edge technology used to create stunning homes. Megan has always had a passion for architecture and has loved drawing up plans since childhood – it’s Megan who interprets the designs to create accurate working plans for each project. Together, Megan and Craig give Etchells Building Design the perfect mix of complementary, specialist skills.

The Etchells have two young sons and one old dog, all enjoying a laid-back lifestyle in their bayside home.

Our Specialties

New Home Design

We love designing beautiful homes that enhance and
complement our client’s lifestyle. Our homes have
great aesthetics, are practical and imaginative, but just as
importantly they work within your budget.

Additions and Alterations

Renovating your home is a great way to maximise space and return on your investment.
We give as much thought to alterations and additions as we do to new
builds ensuring the end result is a stunning
re-imagining of your current home.

Dual Occupancy

Dual occupancy designs are a bit like jigsaw puzzles
and we relish the challenge! We like to take a fresh
approach and create clever, and unexpected, solutions for multi-dwelling buildings.
