Our dream home is not only our most private, sacred space. For us, and for most it’s probably going to be the biggest investment we’ve ever made.
So if you’re at the point where you’re ready to talk to an architect (which we almost are) it’s likely that you’ve been thinking about what you want your dream home to look like for some time now – what shape will it take, what kind of materials will you use, what will the general layout be…
Most of us aren’t really aware at this point of how little we know though – both about practical issues, and about good house design.
We know what we like (e.g. polished concrete floors) and what we need (e.g. four bedrooms), but there’s a yawning gap between identifying these things and actually implementing them into a beautiful, practical, appropriate and efficient house.
And that’s where finding a professional who knows their trade (and who’s style you absolutely love) comes in.
We’ll keep you posted on what we uncover in our own search but if you’ve been down this path before and have any handy tips, we’re all ears!
