You’re Different When Building

You’re Different When Building

Over the years, Bespoke has built many many, beautiful buildings for many many different clients.

We’ve worked with a huge variety of people, some I’ve known previously and still know now, some we’ve met through Bespoke and helped on their construction journey, and some friends and family.

But there’s something that all the people who come through Bespoke’s doors have in common, an uncanny thing that happens to you all – you change! You’re different when building!

You’re braver, take risks that ordinarily you wouldn’t and you tell me you feel accomplished, satisfied and proud. Whilst of course there are times when you’ll inevitably also feel slightly stressed, it’s a wonderful thing to see our clients becoming bolder, taking a chance, and feeling alive.

As your building contractor, this is one of the aspects of my job that I love. It’s so much more fun and satisfying to deal with excited independent customers who are transforming (or creating) their own home, as opposed to a commercial developer who is inevitably driven by margin. Don’t get me wrong, some developers are great to work with, especially when building high-end projects as they always have more freedom with the scope of works, and feel passionate about doing a good job to capture their target market.

It’s a great time to undertake a new build construction or a barn conversion, and I’d wholeheartedly recommend exploring your options in the current housing market. House prices continue to rise across the South West and the interest rates remain low, so in my opinion, now is most certainly the time to start. With careful budget planning, you can expect to end up with a finished project that will be completed under market value, meaning that it should carry instant equity forward. This will put you in good stead for many years to come. And of course you also get to design exactly what you and your family want and need from your home, instead of settling for what the local estate agent has to offer.
