Step 1: Approaching an architect

The first step will see you looking for and briefing an architect. Finding the right architect for your project can take some time. Your chosen architect should share your vision, have previous experience working with designs like yours and leave you feeling completely confident in your work with them.
Your architect is going to help you bring your dream home to life – time spent researching the right person or company is time very well spent.
