What our clients are saying

“I would highly recommend the team at Sorensen Design. Adrian and Scott were sensitive to the heritage requirements of this property and were a pleasure to work with. The brief was far from straightforward but their professionalism, expertise and hard work ensured it ran smoothly. We couldn't be happier with their design for the original building as well as the contrasting modern addition. Thank you!”

Jane W.

“I have used Sorensen Design for multiple projects in the Port Stephens area. From the inception of a project through to completion, Sorensen provides an incredible service. The entire team is extremely knowledgeable and ultra-professional. Thank you to Adrian, Madison, Scott and Mark for ensuring my projects become a reality.”

FAQs about our home designs in the Hunter Valley

After submitting a quote or contact request online, our team will be in touch to discuss your building requirements and design aspirations. The next step is to book a site inspection before drawing up the designs. We will complete an in-depth block analysis, including the slope, soil type, width and length, and any environmental factors that may hinder the project. We do this to determine what is achievable on the block.

If you would like us to complete a renovation or extension project, we will also examine the structural integrity and history of the existing building. We offer the utmost respect and care for heritage-listed buildings to ensure we preserve the historical and cultural value of the property.

Then it’s on to drawing up the designs and gaining council approval for construction to begin! We will communicate with all other parties (e.g. building certifiers, council representatives) on your behalf.

It depends on the project type, the scale and the complexity of the project. No two projects are ever the same — however, we will be able to provide a timeframe after we have completed a site inspection, completed the design and booked various subcontractors and consultants to complete the build. We will keep your schedule in mind throughout the process without compromising quality.

It’s not uncommon for our client’s design aspirations to venture over budget, which is why communication is key during the planning process. During our initial consultation, we will discuss your design requirements, what “the dream” is and what kind of budget we have to work with. After the site inspection, we can provide a realistic estimate of costs to complete the project.

If the estimate is over your preferred budget, our team will provide solutions and recommendations to ensure you receive the desired result.

Dungog map


Dungog is home to some of Australia’s most beautiful federation homes that need preserving for their historical value. Our draftsmen in Dungog assisted with a complete federation home renovation, adding colour and life to a house that needed to feel more like a home without impacting the building’s federation status. See the project here.

We also proposed the conversion of Sugarloaf Dairy in Dungog from a dairy farm into a bespoke, rustic Airbnb, as well as the creation of a spacious, modern dual-occupancy duplex. Take a look at the detailed 3D renders of both projects.

Likewise, we transformed the Pump Station in Wirragulla, Dungog, to feel fresh and rejuvenated while utilising the existing architectural elements for a rustic atmosphere.
