Breathtaking designs to make your dream a reality
Whether you’ve always had your land to build on, or it's a new plot purchase. It is likely that the excitement of building your own home is mounting; but so is the slight feeling of overwhelm...
Hearing about complications from someone else's experience of building a bespoke home can make you feel nervous. It is so important to find an architectural team that you can really trust; not only to come up with a brilliant concept, but also support you along the way so that it is as straightforward as possible.
What Does the Overall Self Build Process Look Like?
From finding a plot of land, planning and construction; building your dream home has a lot of steps to go through and can seem like a huge undertaking. We look after you and your project from start to finish.
Bring Ideas to Life with 3D Visualisation
It can be hard enough to imagine the end result when you redecorate a room, let alone build a whole new home.
Thankfully technology has come on leaps and bounds from the traditional drawing board. We are able to offer an array of visualisation tools to ensure you are 100% confident in your decisions.
In addition, they are great communication tools if you need to share your vision with a variety of stakeholders – watch as they sit in awe of what the future holds.
"We recently asked John to provide drawings for a new build on our plot of land and also a double garage extension for our son’s house. From the initial site meeting, he grasped exactly what we had in mind. The first draft plan was nearly the ideal home and needed very few adjustments to make it perfect.
The excellent advice and guidance from John throughout made the whole process of gaining planning permission straightforward and hassle free.
Both John and David were always friendly, approachable and a pleasure to deal with. I would highly recommend the first class, professional service of Crawford Architecture to any prospective clients."
