Home Design Consultation
Inspire and define your home improvements through a Home Design Consultation with Jane Leach, principal architect at i-architect. Jane will discuss your wishes with you in your home, giving you the benefit of her experience and creativity. Following this you can choose to continue with a full or partial architectural service to take your project through to completion.
A Home Design Consultation is a home visit, which explores your dreams for your home. We assess your wishes as well as your house or building site. This is the first step for any home improvements and will put you in a strong position to take your project forward to achieve your dream home. This service is also suitable when considering a potential property purchase as we can carry out these consultations based on your potential new home. We offer two levels of Home Design Consultation:
Home Concept Meeting £150*
This is a 1 hour meeting with you in the comfort of your home, evaluating your property and aspirations and providing you with professional advice, fresh ideas and inspiration. We will create an outline architectural brief with you and an online ideas book for you to use along with helping you to visualise these with sketch views.
Ideal if you know that you want to make changes but you don't yet know where to start or what changes to make.
Home Design Workshop £495*
For smaller and simpler projects this can be all you need to inform a builder of your wishes.
For larger and more complex projects this stage forms the basis of a feasibility study which we can use to gather further information for you including budget costs, structural possibilities and planning potential. You can then select from a full or partial service for the stages that you need to make your project happen.

* standard fees apply to homes within Lancashire, Merseyside, Cheshire and Greater Manchester.

"I love improving homes and changing lives"
Principal Architect, Jane Leach
"It is gorgeous, really gorgeous, and has made a massive difference to our lives. Thank you so much for the design - you did a fab job."
Private Homeowner, Bramhall, Cheshire
"Jane had an intuitive understanding of my needs. In a very short space of time, Jane helped me to identify a long term vision for my home that could be reached in a series of small but significant improvements. These would add up over the years, producing both short term and long term benefit. Jane’s advice has saved me from making unnecessary changes that would have to be redone in future years at an overall greater expense."
Lorna Dungey, Trafford
Jane’s visit made me understand the value of working with an architect. I guess I had thought that this service would only be very expensive and only relevant for big building projects. I now realise the value of having timely advice when planning a project could save a lot of money and trouble in the longer term. Jane’s ideas have made a big difference to the potential of our house. We are very happy about this. Thank you."
