If you are planning a home extension it can be difficult to know where to start.
House building in Fife has been extremely popular over the last couple of years with over 50 planning applications processed weekly to the planning department.
Do you call an architect first or a builder?
Often many homeowners will have a clear idea of what style of extension they want to do.
They may have seen a loft conversion or kitchen extension in a neighbour’s home that is similar to what they want to do. I
f you have a clear idea of what you want, it helps to make the build more straight forward.
House Building Fife
At Windsor Bespoke we are experienced builders who are willing to offer a specialist architectural package for all home extensions/renovations and take care of all the planning, drawing and building regulations for you.
Working With Recommendation
At Windsor Bespoke, we work closely with architects and structural engineers to ensure our clients are receiving not only a great service, but a service that is affordable for them.
Before deciding if and who to call first, there are three things homeowners should take into consideration:
Using an architect will incur an extra fee, often 15-20 per cent more of the cost of a project.
A good architect can also save you money on larger projects. They are trained to see the big picture and focus on the small details, which can end up being costly mistakes if corners are cut.
How quickly do you want your extension built?
If you are on a tight deadline, we can certainly help as much as possible to get your project over the line. House building and timescale go together massively.
Depending on the complexity and context of your design, we will consider all design aspects of the build – designing for natural light, flow and researching materials – which may take longer.
No matter who you pick, you are going to be working with them, intently, for a substantial period of time.
There has to be trust and a clear understanding of what you expect from each other to avoid any fall out.
At Windsor Bespoke, we will take the pressure off you having to chase up deadlines and most importantly complete the final certificate to sign off the work.
