Designing and building your own PERFECT home
The Casas Manuel family have been working closely with a team of architects, designers, project managers and builders since we first started selling property in Spain back in 2001. Most of the work has been home renovations / building of swimming pools, kitchen and bathroom replacements etc.
The market and the needs of our customers is continually changing and as a company it’s imperative that we keep up to date with the trends in the market to ensure we are giving our customers the best service possible. One such trend which is becoming ever popular is that of the "Design and Build" concept, which gives you, the customer the chance to plan, design and have a major input into the building of your very own dream home.
How does "Design and Build" work
The answer is simple – together we find a suitable plot of land that matches your criteria – we have a range of building plots readily available up and down the Costa Blanca South. Whether you are looking for a coastal setting within walking distance to the glorious golden beaches, or a more traditional setting with a mountain back drop - our dedicated team will find the right plot for you.
Designing the house
Once the plot has been sourced then our architects will be able to give detailed information on the local building regulations and what size and type of property can be built. At this point you (the buyer) will have a face to face meeting with both the architect and our building contractor to get some ideas and pricing down on paper. Our building contractor specialises in both the traditional Mediterranean style and architecture, along with the more contemporary and cutting edge designs which has been influenced by Northern Europe. Together we will help design a bespoke home to fit your style, property requirements and of course your budget.
Making it happen
Casas Manuel will ensure that your dream of building your very own home in Spain is a pleasurable and stress free experience. Together with our dedicated team of lawyers, architects, builders along with interiors designers and decorators – we have succeeded in make such dreams become a reality for many satisfied customers – check out testimonials page to see what to expect from the Casas Manuel Family.
How long does the process take?
Once a plot has been sourced and secured, plans drafted and the relevant licenses sourced from the local townhall an average turnaround from laying the foundations to handing over the keys is usually around 6 months. During the building stage, you will be kept up to date regularly, with the advances in modern technology you can even have a "facetime" with the project manager on-site from the comfort of your own home!
The service doesn't stop
You now have the keys and are settling into your new home. There will always be something that you will need, whether it be swimming pool / garden maintenance, or even advice on where to find a decent hairdresser! – At Casas Manuel our doors are always open and we are proud that many of our clients start off as clients but in the end become dear friends of the family.
