  1. Know the legal requirements. Before you build a house, you need to know exactly what the legal requirements are and what the permissions are that you need. The best thing that you can do is contact your local council and tell them all about your development plans, and they will be able to walk you through the things that are realistic and what really isn't!

  2. Consider the design. Whether you plan to design your home yourself or you choose to choose a company that can help you with the design, you need to think about so many different things to make it work. You need to look at how you can use the landscape, what the safety parameters are and how you can ensure that your home is going to be built in the best possible way. You should also consider things like the eco-friendly design and the green living options that you have so that you can make your home feel like yours.

  3. Get yourself a designer. If you don't have the time and all you want to do is plan the pretty things in your home, you need to think about hiring a designer to help. A designer will help you with the drawings and the planning of your home and you will also be able to see your ideas become a reality. 

  4. Get a builder. You can have all the plans and designs in the world but without a builder, you’re going to fail a little along the way. Ask friends and family for recommendations and get online with a local internet search. This will help you to find the right one. You can then interview and check the credentials of the builders you’ve been recommended and make the best possible choice. Planning your new home is going to be much easier with this one!

  5. Enjoy it. The process can be long but watching your home ideas come to life is pretty impressive. You can feel inspired by the work put in to build your house from the ground up - it’s awesome to watch.
