Q. I am thinking of extending my home but am worried about the processes involved as I have never done this before. What steps do I need to take?
A. The first step is to contact NH Architecture so we can meet for a free initial consultation. We generally visit you at your property or site to discuss your requirements in an informal meeting. Wanting to build or extend you home can seem daunting at the start, but please rest assured we will be able to offer you advice on all aspects of creating your dream home.
After the initial meeting we send you a formal quote for our services. Once our Fee's have been agreed, we return to your property to conduct a full site survey. From this we draw existing plans and elevations to scale. Design sketch proposals, often referred to as concept designs, are then produced for your comments and approval.
Once you are happy with the design we then work these sketches up into a lot more detail which comprise of Planning Drawings and Building Regulation details and drawings which are then submitted to the relevant authorities to seek approval.
