My decision to develop a house with Dwell Homes was influenced by the clever use of timber trusses to provide large open living spaces without the need for steel. Dwell Homes' intelligent use of full height windows and doors created the illusion of extra volume and space. From the conceptual design phase right through to practical completion was a satisfying experience and has given me the confidence to repeat the process in the near future.
