About this Checklist This checklist has been prepared by Caulfield Krivanek Architecture. It is intended as a guide to assist prospective home owners to make informed decisions about the quality of a home before purchasing.

Yet several people launch themselves blindly into purchasing a home, without sufficient care taken to check the quality and condition of the property.
About this Guide This home improvement cost guide has been prepared by the Homesafe Group and Caulfield Krivanek Architecture in conjunction with Kidsafe to provide a guide to home owners contemplating undertaking home improvements, renovations and extensions. In addition to providing stunning, energy efficient buildings, Caulfield Krivanek Architecture is committed to providing safe environments for children, adults and seniors. Every year, approximately 300,000 children and 130,000 adults suffer preventable injuries in their homes. Your home improvement project will provide the opportunity to build a safer environment for you and your family. Home safety design does not add cost, nor does it compromise design integrity, but it could save lives. Additionally, a well-designed improvement is an excellent capital gains tax free investment.
