Description

PS9 Architects in Manchester know from experience how confusing the process can be in developing an Architect Designed Home.

The Architect Your Home Project Checklist is 5 page .pdf file with 16 questions to help focus your mind on developing your own ideas for building your own home. For instance, question five asks you to list what your priorities are

PS9 Architects in Manchester use this form to help us understand our Clients needs and wants. Also, we develop an understanding of what you do not need or want. This is just as important as making sure you get what you need.

All Architect designed homes developed in our studio are developed from the information contained in this document.
