Making some profit from a piece of land — December 20, 2010
Designing and building your own home isn’t as complicated as you might think. If you have been unable to find what you want on the housing market, why not take advantage of being able to construct your own home.
There are many pieces of land, which are available for sale when it comes to constructing homes. If you are looking to build just one home for you and your family, you could consider a small plot, or a larger plot so that you had a big garden. Alternatively, you could think about developing a couple of houses so that you make a bit of profit from the land.
Whatever way you decide to press ahead with building your own home, you need to make sure that you have a good architect on board to assist you. There are many qualified architects who would be happy to assist you but if you are looking to construct a particular type of home such as a timber frame home, you need to make sure that your architect knows what they are talking about.
Once you have plans drawn up for your house, you will need to obtain planning permission. This is a simple process and should be pretty straightforward.
