The couples story

Here we talk to a couple about their exciting new project and how the Master Plan will work for them. Design Help has designed the Master Plan to be a simple framework that guides you through the steps of a project.

Its not a blueprint and there will be cross overs between the various sections. No two projects are the same and there will be aspects that are not relevant or very important for you to pursue.

There are also additional things that may need to be considered, especially if you are dealing with listed buildings or conservation.
Each month we look at the individual sections and explain them more fully than just the brief headings.
