Architectural Services Question
We want to develop our house so that it makes the most of its potential. As much of it as we can afford anyway! We are considering removing walls;dormer loft conversion; room in attic. Can any architect provide design ideas or do we need one who specializes in this field?
An Architect or Designer is the best person to consult for this type of project as they will assess the house as a whole and establish your requirements and offer advice on the best solution to achieve your goals. They should also offer an initial free design consultation.

Extending a house can be surprisingly complex. Experienced residential design is essential or cost can be a shock at building stage. A good design should always be accompanied by a realistic budget cost. Most architectural practices will direct you to an expensive quantity surveyor!
