McMansion Designers


Letac Drafting Services in conjunction with the Shire of Yarra Ranges Council have support for a proposed 2 unit development in Mooroolbark. We designed 2 simple double storey dwellings on a corner block. The proposed design made use of the existing character and streetscape.

Although the neighbours did not approve of the design, that thought they were too big for the area, it created the need for a council delegates meeting.

This lead to council meetings which made us reduce the upper floor size, however they still thought they were too big, thereby causing the nickname of "McMansions" to be bantered around in the council chambers. We were notified later that Councilor Andrew Witlox enforced a very old and seldom used order to rescind the descision.
