I've been in the Building Trade for 40 years. I prepare drawings for Planning/Building Regulations for Extensions & Loft Conversions.I've worked,as they say,on the tools building these projects so I can say that I have the experience to create first class projects at the budgeted price. I can advise the best design on a budget that you have rather than designing something that is out of reach. Being in the Trade for so long I can prepare drawings at a competitive price
About Extending Homes
I left School at 16 and became a Draughtsman, drawing Large Mixing Machines, Aircraft instruments and then to Glass Curtain walling and Roofing. I was interested in Building work and started working for a Builder. Because I had been a Draughtsman, he asked me to prepare Plans for an Extension and a Loft Conversion, apply for Planning Permission and Building Regulations. Ended up doing all his applications and worked on the tools as well, which came in handy with the Design side. Working for him I learnt all the aspects of the Building trade. I have done Plumbing, Electrics, Plastering, Carpentry, Roofing in fact most of the trades. Which comes in handy, especially now with all the Planning, Building Regulations and Certificated requirements. It has helped to know what is required. Preparing the Drawings and doing the work has taught me with Designs helps with the Planning and Building Regulations which seem to alter most weeks
I'm an older type of Builder and didn't need any but did employ all trades with Qualifications that are required. ie Gas Safety, Electric certificated etc. Also have
been on Surveyors course. I also have £250,000 Professional Indemnity Insurance as well as Public Liability.
