The NSW rural fire service, in conjunction with your local council use six different categories to identify the relative risk a fire would pose to your home or block of land. Although the category will vary depending on the exact location the majority of The

The Lost Art of Construction to anyone considering a renovation.”

We bought a block of land in a bush fire zone and were really concerned about how that would impact on the design and layout of our dream home. Matt and his team were so helpful and were able to suggest alternate materials that we would have never thought to use in place of those that are not permitted due to council restrictions for our area.

We found also that dealing with just one person throughout the whole process was so beneficial. It felt like Matt really got to know us and understood our style and vision for the finished product. I would highly recommend using The Lost Art of Construction and would definitely engage their services again if we were to renovate or build again.
