With so many great builders and developers going the way of display homes, it’s getting harder to find specialist custom builders. I like the idea of making homes more affordable to build and own, of streamlining the process working from existing plans and designs. It’s a very efficient way of doing things, which is a lot of the reason why it has become so popular.
We’ve had a few old warehouses near the city my grandfather built in the 50’s and they’ve provided the family with a modest income for a long time. The decision was made to try and make more of the space but it’s not something we normally have anything to do with. All the people we spoke to encouraged us to get great plans and to hire a really capable and professional commercial construction company.
My company considers Draftaway just another part of the team these days. When it comes to planning anything we build, they are the go to guys. From building electrics and detailed schematics right through to full-scale architectural drafting. We basically do none of the work in house anymore.
There are many ways to get creative in the bedroom and I’m not talking about under the covers. A bed head is the perfect way to make a statement in your room and individualise your bed and mattress.
It’s become a bit fashionable to call yourself a little OCD about this or that but as someone genuinely afflicted, there is nothing fun nor fashionable about it. I have a few of the usual ticks, which emerge at the worst of times, and I am literally obsessed with order.
My friends always joked that I was one of those bubble wrap kids whose mothers wanted to protect them from harm. They weren’t being literal of course but I’ve found in adult life I do go through a surprising amount of bubble wrap.
We moved offices recently and the space is really sort of cavernous. It’s such a steal it was hard to turn down but creating a comfortable environment to spend so much time has been an uphill battle.
