The Design Process Explained

A half day course helping you to understand the process and steps involved when designing your new home!

Designing your new home is one of the most exciting things about self building. So we are bringing you a half day course, aimed at explaining the design process step by step.

This seminar will explain how we go about working with you to design your new home from start to finish.

It will take you through the process of creating a design, beginning with establishing your budget, understanding your lifestyle and creating a design brief, right through to preparing a design ready for submission to planning.

It will also explain the design work needed to make a Building Regulations submission and what we do behind the scenes to get ready for manufacture and construction of your dream home!
