How long will planning permission take?

Are you considering stepping into the world of extensions or rebuild?

Do you yearn to have that extra space your neighbours have so cleverly created but have no idea of the process?

So, ripping pages out of magazines, and pinning adorable vignettes will only get you so far. At some point you will need professional help (not just counselling, but an architect or designer!)…

Have a look at the infogram I created for my clients – it leads you through a likely time frame, and describes all the elements you need to have, to get to a successful project start. It is good to know what is coming before it does, and good to be forewarned that planning permission itself is not enough to get on and build!

Have you already got all this but don’t know how long the build will take? Look at my article on how long building projects take.

It is hard to hold acceptance as possible in the face of brutality. It is hard to hold that every person is 100% worthy in the face of murder, when my first, visceral thought creates abhorrence. 
My second thought is the one I choose: 
I do not now, nor will I ever accept wilful, wasteful, bitter harm to another human. I allow and want myself to be deeply upset and angered by this. 
I accept that this behaviour was a choice made by a human. 
I hold that humans are 100% worthy, regardless of behaviour. 
Accepting someone as they are, with free will to make good or bad choices does not mean I do not hold them accountable for their behaviour. 
It does not mean I agree or condone their behaviour. 
I do not accept or condone brutality or murder. 
I stand against this behaviour. 
I stand for humans. 
All humans. 
I want humans to make better choices.
Happily finished pre-lockdown, my clients get to enjoy their wonderful finished home a LOT now! 
Sneak peek of a recently finished home in Prinsted for hands down the #bestclientsever. This wood floor is brand new but so expertly laid by my favourite @justwoodflooring looks like it is original to the property. 
Complete trust from my clients allowed for some amazing interior details options to open up, like curved corners to the walls (SO worth the effort). All to create a modern ‘old’ home.

A bit of a side step from my normal appreciation, but for architecture, and for the love of horses, I couldn’t let this pass. Designed by @matiaszegers, this stable has the maximum daylight pouring in through its cleverly envisaged roof. 
I want to come back as one of these horses...
