ROSEMARY MAKES ITS CONTRIBUTION TO A DREAM HOME

David had a very clear vision for his project but had to make careful choices to make sure his plans would be passed by the planning committee.

This beautiful detached house is in a cul-de-sac and David definitely did not want to build it in the style of the other properties in the road. The yellow London stock brick was a bit of a risk and, although his preference would have been for slate tiles, he opted for clay to ease the planning process.

“I’m not that keen on large format interlocking tiles, to be honest. I prefer the traditional size and shape of the clay plain tiles. Rosemary was an obvious choice and I went for the Blue as it was the nearest I could get to a slate colour.

“The result is great. I really like the contrast between the yellow brick and blue tile. It’s exactly the effect I was after.”

Building your own house, even if you are an experienced contractor, is a big project and David tells us that he has yet to move in. “I run a business: my clients’ projects have to come first, so when we’re busy as a company my own project slows down. We hope to be in before too long.”
