June 30, 2020 2:48 pm


If you have made the big decision to  build your own home, then there is so much to think about – when you have found a suitable plot, you will want to make sure there are drainage facilities, as well as electricity and water supplies, and you may requite the services of a land remediation company such as this one to ensure that the land is suitable for you to build on.

All of this, and that is before you can even think about the house! When you are at last ready to get to the really exciting part, you will need to find an architect to help you bring your plans in your head to the drawing board – ready for the builders to follow and create your dream house!

When it comes to your search, you will probably be looking online – for a big building project, you will need to  find yourself a registered architect in the same area you are, as you will probably have to have a few meetings!

When you are approaching architects, have a good idea in your head of what you want and try to include as much information as possible – the more information that you provide the architect with, the better they will be able to help you to create your perfect home.

Speak to them about budgets, the size of the house and number of bedrooms as well as what materials you like and any examples that you can find of buildings that you like. If you have pictures of kitchens, bathrooms and homes the more the better – provide as much relevant information as you can, and you will be well on the way to having your new individual home!
