Description:

Designing your new home is one of the most exciting things about self building and this masterclass will explain how we go about working with you to design your new home from start to finish.

It will take you through the process of developing a design, beginning with establishing your budget and understanding the constraints and opportunities inherent in your plot. We will help you think about how you might want to live in your new home and guide you through the process of creating a design brief and working with a designer all the way through to a planning submission.

We will explain the design work needed to make a Building Regulations submission and what we do behind the scenes to get ready to manufacture and construction of your dream home!

This masterclass is also aimed at helping attendees understand more about energy efficiency and the different levels of performance that can be targeted. It will also cover the pros and cons of different building systems and heating solutions available in the UK.
