If we are to construct a small house firstly we need to plan for, what kind of house do we need? Which locality will suit us? How many rooms do we require in the house? And many such questions need to be answered before hand. Once we are clear with these questions we need to put all the things on paper and design a house accordingly.
The design concept of the 'golden triangle' is a natural fit with a U shape: when designing your space, keep your fridge, cooker and⁄or hob and sink between 120cm and 270cm away from each other. This will make for a practical, time‐efficient and safe use of your space, something that is harder to achieve in longer, L‐shaped or galley kitchens, for example. Ideally your U‐shaped kitchen will have a window at the 'U' end. This makes a great spot for the sink, allowing you to look out over your garden while you wash up without having wall units overhead.
It may be that the builder is converting an existing building. Barn conversions are very popular in this day and age, as the presence of an already existent building makes things easier in that the floor area is already set, and some framework may be able to be utilised in the new building. Important areas to be considered should also include the relevant planning permission required, as most authorities will need to approve plans for a new building, and also plans for the conversion of existing buildings, particularly when a change of use from commercial to private dwelling is involved.
It is advised that engaging an architect is a sensible move, especially if the builder has no prior experience of designing or building a property, and there are many planning services on the web as a quick search will prove. Styles of property that the home builder chooses can vary, and the number of bedrooms, floors, rooms and windows and doors needs to be considered along with the construction method and material, the floor plan and the location. Roofing materials and insulation techniques are all part of the necessary considerations, and heating and glazing requirements must also play a part in the design and planning process.
