1. Find a good architect or building designer – they will give you the best start  with design concepts and advice for your new home.

Your designer's job is to help you shape the space both inside and out. You will get great advice from an experienced designer to achieve your goals in terms of architectural vision and meeting your design brief for your luxury home.

Working with a good architect or building designer can help you in many ways, but the most important is that they'll guide and advise you with design decisions for your new home and keep your best interests in mind. They'll also help you have control of the copyright to your plans with a license to use your design with any builder. You don't want to build a custom home without their assistance!

How to find a good designer?
Ask what software the architect or designer uses, do they do all the work or subcontract the work out to others?
Using  ArchiCAD, or other popular CAD package that can allow them to provide 3D renders and animations is important. You will get a much clearer picture of the finished product from this.

Ask to look at some of their other projects and check to see if they have any online reviews.

Working with good professionals helps with cost control and final budgets.

2. Choose a reputable and experienced builder – one who has worked on other projects like yours.

They're going to be the ones who hire and co-ordinate all of the individual trades, suppliers and oversee your project from start to finish. Seek out a builder who's built your size and style of home and has good reviews.

 What Tristan has to say:

"Talking to a third party and getting independent advice is just incredibly important.

You could say I’m biased but just come and have a chat with us to learn how we can help you and let us prove you wrong.

The process of liaising with builders is tiresome, lengthy and out of date.

We see so many people who have so many issues with their build because they haven’t been able to manage the above points.

The more solid and reliable independent people you can put around you, the better your  outcome will be.

This is the best tip I can give you in my 20 year’s experience in this industry."
