As the days become longer and the nights become shorter, now more than ever is a great time to kick on with your projects. Earlier starts and later finishes, plus hopefully an end to the bad weather, mean there's real scope to progress things and possibly make up for some of the time you may have lost over the winter period. This is also probably a good time to think about the landscaping project and what you are going to do with the space beyond the walls of your home. With this in mind, in the Spring issue we've spoken to Charlie Lear of Harrison James Contemporary Garden Rooms, about garden rooms and what the latest developments can bring to a project. As Charlie explains: "It's important to think beyond the preconceptions of a 6x8 foot tanalised shed when considering a design. A garden room can be a project where your creativity can really take off. The ability to create a structure that maintains sympathy with its surroundings is just as important with a garden room as it is with a full new build project, even though you don't need planning permission." Read the full article on p.84.

Elsewhere in this issue, on p.36 interior designer Debra Kacher of DKInteriors explains how to master one of the next big trends to hit interior design in 2016: broken-living. Debra says, despite its negative name, broken-living "offers many positive benefits to 21st century living, and is the freshest way to open up your home whilst making sure you have those secluded areas for a bit of peace and quiet or privacy." Debra talks us through some of the key pointers to achieving a successful flow to a broken-living design, and looks at a recent Grade 11 listed renovation project she worked on, where a family of five were looking to achieve an "open plan layout with interconnected space" on the lower ground floor.

As ever, we've also got a round-up of the latest products and innovations which may help bring something different to your project on p.30, plus our regular look at the finance (p.08) and insurance (p.15) side of self-builds. We also have some great reader offers for upcoming exhibitions which are well worth a visit. So read on for all this and much, much more...
