Description

This book is a practical guide for homeowners, with checklists and guidance on how to make their project successful. Most people considering a significant alteration to their home have no experience or knowledge of the process that has to be followed to make their project successful, and the consequences of things going wrong are serious. As with the first edition, this fully-revised guide distils all of the practical information needed to run a project from dream to reality, highlighting the pitfalls along the way and suggesting ways to avoid them. Peppered with inspirational case studies and giving indications of costs and timescales, Home Extension Design 2e demystifies both the building process and all the surrounding issues to do with design, sustainability, budgeting, planning, regulations and the use of building contracts. This book is the essential go-to resource for reliable, independent advice on how to set up and run a building project.

  • The author is an experienced self-build architect used to directing and responding to his clients briefs, and has a deep understanding of home improvers’ needs.
  • The book has been carefully crafted to offer friendly, jargon-free guidance full of hints, tips and watch-points to answer all home extension questions.
  • Beautifully illustrated with case studies, this book promote architects’ offer of unrivalled design skills.
  • Provides inspiration and ideas for homeowners that can be applied to their own house.
