Planning for Building your families dream home

You and your family need to first decide on the area where you want to build. Hopefully there are building plots available because finding house building plots is very difficult. Then you should drive around the area to see what style of house you want and what style of house would fit into the area, the planning department will not want to allow a mews type development that is sitting next to bungalows. Also consider the construction materials that the houses are built of, mainly wall construction, windows and roof materials.
