Designing your own home can be a most enjoyable and rewarding project. Getting your
ideas into pictures and drawings can be achieved on a number of different levels.
Initially, you need to keep visual images of what you like and want in a folder.
This can be clippings from magazines or websites saved as favourites. Over time quite
a few ideas will be gathered and some will fall by the wayside. At some point however
you are going to make some decisions if your project is going to get off the ground.
