What Houzz contributors are saying:
What’s the biggest mistake people make when embarking on building work?It comes back again to that thing of not doing it alone. It’s not a solo journey – you need a support team and back-up. For most of us mere mortals, that means surrounding yourself with great people – good architects that provide you with detailed drawings, for example. People often make the mistake of trying to do too much, which doesn’t work and is very painful to watch. Even Ben Law [one of the most popular Grand Designs builders who constructed his own timber home] had a great architect, friends and a lot of help from experts. Minimise hoofing it, and instead prepare, prepare, prepare.
