When it comes to creating a home that you want, many people have headed down the route of building their own. The television show Grand Designs has inspired many people to go for it and build the home of their dreams, and over the years, we have seen many types of homes built on that programme, to varying degrees of success!
Whether you want to build a Hi-Tech home in the hills, or the most eco friendly home ever, or something that is just yours, it is a good idea to do a plan of research and realise what you are signing up for!
To finance the build there are many ways of doing this, but for most people, a self build mortgage is what they tend to use. Shop around for these and work out what you can afford and what the repayments are – you don’t want to have a financial catastrophe as a result, so do plenty of research into this and work out what it is likely to cost you.
You will also need help to turn your dream home into a real one. Find an architect that you can work with who specialises in your style of home and residential buildings, like this residential architects London based company www.rbddesign.com – be aware that you will need to work closely together and have a good relationship, so spend time explaining exactly what it is that you want before committing to anything.
