Project Appraisal Service – Should you buy that plot or barn or house?
Should you buy that plot or barn or house to renovate? How do you know?
- We will come and visit the plot/barn/house that you are thinking of buying
- We will record your frustrations with your existing house as well as your ideas and plans for how you would like to live in your new project
- We will then go away and produce a Project Appraisal report
The Project Appraisal report will cover the below in answer to common questions received by self-builders:
Can we afford it?
We will give you ball park costings for the size of project as well as suggestions for reducing costs if your budget is smaller.
Will we be able to get planning permission?
The report will provide an investigation into similar projects in the local area which have been approved or refused by planning authorities. We have an excellent planning permission record (53 out of 55 applications submitted) so you can count on us to get this right.
Is it build-able?
Essential advice from consultants (such as structural engineers) to find out as much information we can about the build-ability of your project.
We also provide an off-site assessment of local site conditions and potential building problems as well as potential ways of overcoming these.
Then you will have all the information you need to move knowledgeably forward and make the best decision for you
How does it work?
The above service can be a one-off or lead into a real project. There is no obligation to continue working with us once we have given you all the information you need.
However, if you would like to continue working with us…
We can take you all the way through from you ideas to your completed dream home, in whatever form that might be.
If you would like to move forward with your dream home ideas, please contact us using the form here and we will be in touch.
If you are not quite ready to move forward but would like to keep in touch (and benefit from free advice and ideas) please sign up to our newsletter at the bottom of this page.
