    Sorry my questions got nothing to do with window cleaning.

    At the moment it impossible for me to get on the property ladder.

    I had a discussion with my parents today and we got talking about the possibility of knocking down my parents garage and build a one bedroom detached bungalow on their land so I can owned my own place.

    I know nothing about building a property, I would be looking to pay to get it build if it is possible for me to get planing permission.

    It very early days, but i can't stop thinking about it tonight. Does anyone know about this kind of stuff and would 100k to build a one bedroom bungalow from scratch be possible?

    I got some saving, if possible to get planning permission and get it build for under 100k I would be able to have small mortgage and that would change my life massively!

    You need to get planning permission and have some plans drawn up.
    If you are knocking down a garage and building where that was there needs to be adequate parking for the new house as well as the existing house.

    Once you have planning and have your drawings then you can get a cost on the build.

    My father in law owns www.hertsconstruction.com they can build you any thing from a garden wall to a 6 bedroom house.

    Should easily build a smart pad for that. My partner built in her parents gifted land back in 2005 a 4 bed detached one off design place, it cost £68k

    Maybe we could compromise and make it 6 1/2 bedroom for you his still learning?
    To be honest they can build pretty much anything.
