Here we provide our readers with answers to all the common (and not so common!) questions around building a home in the country.

 

Why do I need a soil test before building? We answer that. Should I build or buy a home? Yep, we help answer that too. What’s the best time of year to build a new home? Or what about The section 32 statement?
