‘Designing your dream self-build home’ Blog Post with Smith & Love

David Cox spoke to Smith and Love, a local Preston-based Planning Consultants firm, in a question and answer session about house design and finding the right builder

Designing a dream home is a very personal process and here in David Cox Architects we use our expertise to help our clients.

David says: “Many of us dream of designing our own home and often when we first meet a client they have already visualised the layout and style they would like. Whilst it’s important to capture this vision, we also like to understand how the client plans to spend their time so that I can design a home that works best for them.”

In the blog post, David discusses his approach by posing some useful questions early on in the process to guide the design. For example:

What should the house offer in terms of space?

How will the house be used?

What should the house look like?

He also covers the ever so important questions on costs and timescale. You can click here to read the full blog post by Smith and Love.
