So how do you design your home?
Well, its a long process that has many important stages.
Those stages have a chronological order that when followed correctly combine into a well defined space.
Failing to follow them can result in catastrophe! We all know someone who ran out of budget in the middle of building, or had to go back to an early stage because they didn’t think of some of the details that are now a problem (mistakes of that sort cost a lot of time and money).
Over the past 8 years i have designed and planed houses, buildings and apartments. I was the designer, the project manager and the Inspector. And i have made all the mistakes possible and learned all the lessons. And i am going to share them with you – so that you wont have to pay the high price of insufficient planning .
