Self-build Homes

Self-build Homes

Most of us dream of building a Grand Design’s home, and we are experts in creating bespoke houses.

We have a portfolio of award-winning self-build houses across the country from bustling cities, to sea cliff-edges and country retreats.

We have taken many clients down the complicated path that comes with building a house, and are ideally suited to lead you through the process from concept to completion.

Our clients are at the heart of what we do, providing a friendly, approachable design service regardless of the brief, budget and timescale.

We can take you from concept design stage, through planning and building approvals, to helping with a trusted local builder. Whether you want a sleek contemporary house or a more traditional country home, we have the experience to design the right solution for you.

Fixed Cost Self-build Home Designs

Fixed Cost Self-build Homes

We have created a range of architect-designed homes that provide clients with a fixed cost for design, planning applications and building standards approval.

Seaforth Drive Extension


A house extension is often the most cost-effective way of creating more space for an expanding family. Moving to a new house can be expensive and a lack of local options makes this a daunting thought.

At Andrew Black Design, we excel in creating innovative solutions to problems with existing houses, whether it is reconfiguring a poor layout or extending to create more usable space. From simple kitchen extensions to large glass sun-rooms, we can enhance even the humblest house.

We can take you from concept design stage, through planning and building approvals to helping with a trusted local builder.

We advise our clients, except for the most basic of projects, to employ Andrew Black Design to carry out a full architect service from stages 1 to 10.

The services below (1-7) are generally the minimum you require from your Architect, to cover your legal responsibilities and are suitable for simpler projects for experienced clients only.
