Home Building Guidelines
Proabably the most important home building guideline of all is to employ the correct professionals right
from the start. Even early analysis of the site itself is important especially if you are deliberately purchasing a
property with a view to extending.
Provided the homeowner employs a qualified architect or experienced home extension designer then this would be a
great start point.
The second main home building guideline would be to ensure that you are being precise on your overall
requirements and what you want to achieve from the extended property. This often means writing a list, making
you own sketch plans to relay your own vision to the architect or home extension designer.
Although it is vital that they input some of their own ideas and thoughts into the scheme design, all architects
and house extension designers do need some form of start point which is normally your requirements - after all it
is your vision they are trying to make a reality not their own.
The remaining home building guidelines are more peripheral and mundane such as ensuring you have
access to funding of the scheme, set yourself a generous time period for the design build up and the council
applications before you can approach builders are examples.
