A design and build company does pretty much what it says on the tin – designs and builds your home; helping you design your own house from scratch, pick out the small details and actually bring your dream home to life. They will take on the responsibility of planning the project, drawing up the designs, costing, sourcing the building materials and supplies, building the structure, installing any permanent features and possibly advising on the interior design of your home; all while consulting you every step of the way. A design and build company will usually employ in-house architects to handle all of the technical design aspects of your renovation or build, whether that’s to design a house or just a kitchen, and will also have main contractors or project managers that will oversee the construction work.
If all of this sounds ideal, then start searching for design and build procurement companies that can design a house, or room, for you and discuss design and build contracts with you. If you want to look for more specialised contractors, designers, architects or builders to help you renovate or build your own home, then you can still find them on Houzz.
