On the 13th Sept our blogged about the start of a property journey. We thought we’d expand on that for those of you that are considering buying a plot of land and building a new home. We’ve been there, you aren’t bonkers!
The first time we built a home for ourselves, we sold a ‘real home’ – small but perfectly formed, and bought a £500 static caravan and a piece of land.
We moved ourselves and our two 9 month old children into the static and started on a path of outdoor country, mud loving, brick buying living! Every penny went into the plot and home build.
Happy days, weekly trips to a laundrette, lots of attempts to keep the mould at bay inside the van, the start of a life long dislike of net curtains and making a bed every night from a sofa!
But, it’s worth it! If you get your plans right, have them submitted to local authority and approved and can start the build in the spring or summer months, then you are on the right road.
We can draw plans for a new home, submit them to local authority, then prepare drawings for you to get builders quotes from and these can be used for building control approval also.
In addition we bring to your table, our direct experience of building homes from the ground upwards. Need our number? 07584 622776 call us, let’s chat!
Take a look at another blog from Oct 2018 for steps to consider in preparation for a new build journey…
