We also have our own range of CB Homes Signature designs to choose from, and can tailor any design to meet your brief. Working closely with our team of architects, our completely bespoke service allows you to create a personalised wish list in line with your vision. The options really are endless.
Should you decide to proceed, we will prepare initial personalised plans and designs for your review, along with a fixed fee that includes all preliminary planning requirements, building regulations, warranties and full complete build costs. With complete flexibility to work towards any budget, our unbiased, professional approach ensures complete transparency throughout the design stage of the process.
With or without planning permission, CB Homes can help you realise your self-build vision. If planning has already been granted, then we can match you with one of our architects to take your plans forward to working drawing stage – matching designs with architectural styles.
And if planning permission is yet to be approved, or has already been refused then we can work with you to maximise your future planning potential. We offer a free planning appraisal service – talk to us today to get your plans off the ground.
Once you have signed off the architect’s initial sketch scheme, we will then evolve this into architectural planning drawings. These will be prepared in conjunction with all other supporting documents that are required for the planning submission, and submitted to the relevant Local Authority planning department. Throughout this stage of the process both our construction team and your allocated architect will be in regular contact with you to keep you informed.
We pride ourselves on our personal approach, and the strength of relationships we develop with our clients. From the very outset, you’ll deal with the same small team of people, and have a direct point of contact throughout your self-build project.
Once your planning application has been approved we will work closely together to satisfy conditions which will involve decisions on options for external materials, and landscaping elements which will enable us to apply for building regulations, and register your build with the NHBC and local authority. At this stage we’re now almost ready to start, and break ground!
You will be allocated your own dedicated Site Manager, and you can choose how much or how little you want to be involved. Regular project meetings will be managed by the Construction Director, so you’ll always know what’s going on, at every stage of the process.
Our complete fixed approach to costing provides you with regular updates against budget. So, from start to finish you will always know what spend is committed and projected, giving you maximum flexibility when it comes to the finishing touches. And throughout the project our team of experts can advise where potential cost savings can be made on your build, or where spending a little more in certain areas would result in greater satisfaction with your dream home.
Even after we have handed you the keys, you can feel assured we will be there to take care of your snagging issues that may arise thanks to the NHBC 10-year Buildmark Warranty. Our after-sales care team is always just a phone call away.
