Welcome and thank you for visiting our website. I am Tom Somerville, Company Architect for buildinfreedom.
Building your own home is a dream shared by many people but it is major undertaking and can seem a daunting task. For your project to be successful youíll need expert advice and guidance from someone who knows the system and has wide experience of designing and building one-off dwellings.
We are self-build specialists and have been helping clients build their own home for 40 years. I have been Company Architect for more than 20 of those years and have built my own home on several occasions. Originally from Edinburgh I qualified at Dundee University and worked for a number of years in the commercial field in Glasgow before taking up the post of Senior Architect with a large local authority. Aware of the lack of Architects working in the sector, in 1988 I decided to focus on the growing self build market. Since then I have helped hundreds of families realise their dream of building for themselves.
Unlike most Architects I donít work on my own. I am backed up by our highly experienced team of experts who have been with the company for over 20 years and like myself, have all built their own home. We are service driven and passionate about helping people realise their dreams; quality, value and choice are at the heart of our unique service.
If you are thinking about building a bespoke home why not complete the enquiry form on this website for an informal chat with me.
