We will build on a plot of land next to the flat we live in, says Soskia. We bought it two years ago but it has taken this long for us to start work. The plot measures five metres by 10 metres and we paid 33,000 for it. Our architects, Blanchard Consulting, planned a four-bedroom brick coachhouse-style home but planning permission was turned down at first. After an appeal we got permission in April last plannedConsulting, Building a future: Soskia and Michael in front of their plot, left, and an artists impression, below, of how their home will slot into the space year. We got a self-build mortgage for 350,000 and altogether the house is going to cost us 450,000. When finished it will be worth about 650,000. We will have our perfect family home in an area where we want to live. index.html2.html3.html4.html5.html6.html7.html8.html9.html10.html11.html12.html13.html14.html15.html16.html17.html18.html19.html20.html21.html22.html23.html24.html25.html26.html27.html28.html29.html30.html31.html32.html33.html34.html35.html36.html37.html38.html39.html
