Building your own house is a widely held dream and we have helped a great many people do just that, guiding them from very first thoughts to the day they move in and a new life begins.
Circumstances vary – for some it is possible to consider building their new home in the garden of a house they already own. This has the clear advantage of enabling them to remain in their former home until they can transfer to the new property. For others a replacement dwelling is the way forward and typically we are able to gain consent for a much larger dwelling than exists. Further variants are the purchase of vacant land where it is hoped a new home can be built., and the conversion and change of use of redundant buildings. Under these circumstance the planning advice and feasibility studies we can provide are invaluable.
Whatever your situation, the process can be daunting but we will guide you throughout, offering sound advice, ensuring you know what to expect and helping you to stay one step ahead. Building your own home is for most people a once-in-a-lifetime experience. We make sure that it is enjoyable and free from stress. See our architectural services section for a summary of the processes involved and contact us to arrange a preliminary meeting without obligation if you would like to discuss a project you have in mind.
