Things to Consider When Building a House

Embarking on a new build project is an exciting time. However, this exciting time can quickly turn into a nightmare if the process has not been carefully planned and budgeted for. There are many aspects to consider before you take the leap into your new build project. They include:

Land & Location

Whether you are buying land or have a plot you wish to build on, consider how long you would wish to live in that location. Are there busy roads which may annoy you after a while? Is the land hilly or too remote?

In addition, we advise on researching upcoming planning proposals and developments in the area to ensure your views won’t be ruined for the foreseeable future.

Home Design

Traditional builds have a lot of character, while modern, contemporary homes can have an impressive wow factor. The home design phase is one of the most important stages as you get to put your ideas on paper. Consider the materials you wish your home to be built from and the long-term maintenance they will require.


Once you have your ideal home design, you will need to apply for planning. This can be a time-consuming process depending on the complexity of your project. Planning applications can be refused, and therefore designs will need to be reconsidered. It is worth researching the local area to gauge what type of development may or may not be approved before you plunge into applying for planning.


Budgeting is vitally important, and it is essential that your budget includes allowances for uncontrollable factors such as planning delays, additional architect fees, material price rises and unexpected costs.
