At this moment in time, you are on the threshold of realising a dream. Your project is a broad, clean canvas on which to create your perfect home. This is an exciting time, but we appreciate that it can also be a daunting one, and this is why we are on hand to help you throughout the entire process.
Once you have decided that you would like to build your own Scandia-Hus home, we will allocate a team to work with you, headed by your own personal Project Manager, who will be responsible for discussing your specific requirements – site opportunities and constraints, possible planning or aesthetic restrictions, cost implications, build options, builders’ tenders, finance, insurance, and much more. In brief, he will be guiding you through the whole project from start to finish.
But before you get that far you will no doubt want to get a clearer idea of what is involved. In simple terms, the stages to any self-build project are:
- Start turning your ideas into reality – look at your accommodation needs, the site, budget, timescale
- Sort out your budgets and finance – Obtain costing for building set and construction work, seek advice if needs be on how to finance your project
- Plan your project – Need to consider site access and storage, put out tenders for work if required, compile a budget and cash-flow programme
- Decide how to undertake your build – manage your own build, engage a project manager or use a single contractor
This may all seem a little overwhelming at first, but don’t be put off. For further information, please click HERE for our Fact Sheet No.7 entitled ‘Five-Point Plan’. This will give you a clearer idea of where to start.
Once you have read and digested this information, we would suggest you telephone to make an appointment to visit us to discuss your requirements with our experienced staff and visit our show centre.
