As the clocks go forward and we begin to enjoy some - albeit slightly - better weather, spring is the time that historically as self-builders you can really push on with your projects. It's also the time of the year that reminds us that bringing natural light and connecting the interior and exterior of the project is crucial for the properties we live in.

With this in mind, in this issue we hear from Toby Stuart-Jervis who explains why the materials we use on our exterior projects are now on a level with interior finishes in terms of design and quality (p.70).

We've also compiled a selection of exclusive articles looking at all aspects of self-build and renovation projects, ranging from getting your finance and budgets right first time; to preparing and planning your plumbing; to selecting the right brick for your project - you might be surprised by the variety and choice!

In this issue we also focus on the interior finish for projects with advice on kitchens from designer Graeme Smith (p.58). As Graeme explains: "Being one of the most important rooms in your home where you spend valuable time with family and friends, it's the detail in the design that is key to bringing the look of your kitchen together, uniting form and function to its maximum potential."

Sticking with the theme of creative design and use of space, we also look to the bedroom and talk fitted furniture with interior designer Andy Briggs (p.30). As Andy explains: "The bedroom in particular should absolutely be a sanctuary, but it's often one of the most challenging rooms in the house from a design perspective. Whilst people style their entertaining space downstairs to reflect their lifestyle, the bedroom is all too often a home for clutter."

So whatever stage your project might be at, read on for expert advice, installation tips, case studies and so much more.

Enjoy the issue!
