Self-Build Family Home is Completed


Back in May 2019, FORM visited a client looking to redevelop a residential site. FORM were then commissioned to take on the design of a scheme but the client later decided to extend upwards to create a single family home.

Before the development, the existing bungalow was in a very dilapidated state with an overgrown garden and some areas of the ceiling had collapsed.

The bungalow had a ‘u-shaped’ footprint which was infilled to create a rectangular footprint and extended upwards adding a first floor and accommodation in the roof space.

The client decided to take on the project management himself as a self-build whilst FORM provided architectural, planning services and technical guidance for the client during the build.

Now completed, the property is valued at approximately £1.6 million with a very happy client.
