Photos of the property will tell our designers as much as a walk round the site will. Things such as drains, foundations, external wall composition have to be assumed whether an on-site survey takes place or not.
The overall shape and structure of the house can be determined by accumulating all the internal window, masonry, and door sizes! Then outside boundaries affecting the design can be referenced, and an OS map will tell me where they are. The heights outside can be jotted down – see the self survey guide for further information.
