Part 3 Mapping out the project

As we get closer to finalising the technical design, we need to make core specification decisions and appoint the key partners who will deliver the superstructure of the Build It Education House. Chris Bates looks at what’s involved

Follow our journey online at ourhouse

In the last issue, I looked in detail at how we came up with the design for Build It’s Self Build Education House. Most of us don’t get too many shots at creating our dream home, so it’s worth taking your time over this stage to make sure you get it right. Putting your focus on making detailed decisions now may feel a bit frustrating when you’re itching to get your project underway, but in the long run it will always work out quicker and cheaper than making alterations when you’re halfway through the works.

Our site is on Graven Hill in Bicester, the UK’s biggest self build opportunity, with over 1,900 bespoke homes set to be created over the next 10 years. The development has an overarching planning permission in place. So if you’re buying a site, you know that provided your scheme falls within the design code and any individual parameters identified on the corresponding Plot Passport (eg in terms of ridge heights and total living area), it should get the go-ahead under a 28-day, fast-track planning approval scheme.
