Why you should consider building a new home.
Building a new home may sound like a daunting task, but the only way to really and truly get the space you’ve always wanted is to start from scratch. Sure, you can probably find something that comes pretty close if you shop around/compromise on some aspects, but why compromise when you can achieve the perfect space?
One of the many joys of building a new home is being able to have control of the quality of everything right down to the door hinges. It also allows you to add those luxury spaces you’ve always dreamed of having but never thought you would. We’ve created feature staircases, walk in wardrobes and wine cellars for our clients and it’s their faces when they first see these spaces in their new home that really makes everything worth it.
Did you know that building a new home from scratch can actually enable you to reduce your carbon footprint and allow you to be more environmentally conscious? By using more energy efficient materials and making your home more energy efficient, both your carbon footprint and your energy bills will be lower (which is good for both the environment and your wallet!).
Without mentioning the dreaded ‘B’ word, costs for materials are increasing all the time. There’s no better time to build a new home. Why not start today?
What you’ll need:
This might seem obvious but making sure the location is right for you is key – the rest we can sort out!
2. A clear idea of what you need/want in terms of space/features of your home
T N Design and Build can turn your dream home into reality, but first we need as much information as possible about your vision and how you plan on utilising the space.
This is why our owner, Tom, will come out on a home visit along with our trusted architect for a client consultation. Covering the build costs, planning applications with the local authority, build options and the build process. Within a week of an initial enquiry. We really do like to talk in depth with our clients to ensure we have a full understanding of what it is you really want to get out of your project.
3. A strong partnership with a construction and design expert.
Being able to trust your builder to turn your dream home into a reality is critical. Unfortunately it’s true that many companies out there can ‘talk the talk’, but can’t ‘walk the walk.’
Here at T N Design and Build we actually offer both the design and build aspects of your project. This proven approach remains beneficial for both us and our clients, ensuring we maintain full control across the project – right from labour and materials through to the building work itself. Furthermore, someone is always in the office at the end of the phone if there is anything you need to discuss. We are with you at every stage of the build.
Patience is key when it comes to any building project. The design and planning stages are often overlooked in terms of expected time frames, but both of these early stages are crucial to ensuring the delivery of your dream home.
With over 18 years in the local Surrey building trade, we believe in delivering transparency from the outset. We remain in constant contact with our clients and advise on the progress of works which are checked against the plan. Don’t forget, new builds are created to last a lifetime and these things don’t happen overnight but Tom and the team will keep you updated every step of the way.
