Self-build Homes

Self-build Homes

Most of us dream of building a 'grand design' and Andrew Black Design are experts in creating bespoke houses.

We have a portfolio of award-winning self-build homes, from cliff-edge seaside houses to country retreats.

We have taken many clients down the complicated path that building a house is 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 homely 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.

Andrew Black Design will provide you with a unique, professional Architects service, covering the following 3 separate services for a fixed cost;

Stage 1: Design choices, options and planning application. 

Stage 2: Building Warrants and technical approvals. 

Stage 3: Site inspections for mortgage purposes.

All the above stages are carried out for a fixed fee agreed prior to starting the project, giving the client upfront costs to allow them to budget accurately.

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 re-configuring 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.
