  3. What is the best design/layout to suit your needs and the style of your house.
  4. What is your budget, what is it going to cost and how will you fund it.
  5. Will you need an agreement with your neighbour before work starts under The Party Wall etc Act 1996.
  6. How will you choose the right builder for the job.
