What will this do for me? Get Prepared!
This simple to use tool will help you to discover the thought process that is needed to get the best from your new bespoke home. The design process typically raises hundreds or perhaps even thousands of questions about the bespoke home. These are very complicated and expensive to answer during the later stages of the design process. The best time to answer them is at the start.
The number one cause of cost and time over-runs on any building project is poor planning, and failure to address the key questions in a timely way. There are also other things including bad ground conditions, and other factors, perhaps even bad luck, but proper planning tends to bring these into check.
Formulate your ideas
Write down what you would like in each space of the property, and start to reveal how it will suit your lifestyle in the way only a bespoke home can. This resource will allow you to focus on what was important at the start of the project, and is a good point of reference to stop you getting carried away!
Set your goals
Start thinking about when you would like the property completed by. What will you do in the meantime, and how this process can be managed. Modern methods allow quick progress, so you may be in before you think! You will probably need to see how this fits around life and work.
Get an idea of budget on paper, this will allow us to ascertain if your wish list is realistic, or if you're overreaching. better to get this sorted early on! We will help you to set a realistic budget to work with. This should include a suitable contingency fund and slight market fluctuation is to be expected.

The SA System, and what people say about it.
Completing this questionnaire is just a first step along a defined path to success. We developed our unique system a few years ago after identifying the trend toward projects going over time and over budget in the industry. We've had some great feedback about the benefits it has had for some of our customers. We'd love to share with you!
AFTER DOWNLOADING - A PLAN
Wed love it if you would contact us for a free project review see how, and some other FAQ's below:
No, not normally. We will of course visit later on in the process, but our initial consultation takes place by telephone, videoconference or office visit. The reason for this is simple, until we've decided that the project is a good fit, and we are the right company to take it on for you, this would be of little benefit to either of us. You can make a free 30 minute appointment by calling 01603 713528, or by emailing your form to firstname.lastname@example.org.
We do not quote without all the information in place. The process is now a lot more complicated than design plans alone, so we need to fully assess the potential, and work involved in making applications, and design detailing before we quote. Typically the first stage will involve a detailed study of the site and your options before we start designing. This has the benefit of keeping costs down before the potential of the site is properly explored. In medical terms we do not rush into surgery before making a proper diagnosis!
Yes we can, but we only select a few projects each year. Typically we build or refurbish 3-5 properties a year, and these must fit with our aspirations in terms of quality and integrity of finish. If you are interested in a Design and build solution contact us for an initial consultation on 01603 713528 and we'll let you know when we may have capacity if your project is of interest.
