Update! NDA National Design Award 3D Video simulation of penthouse

The response to the NDA National Design Award 2011 competition has been fantastic and people are really excited to start designing and hopefully grab that £3000 cash prize and see their design come true.

To help you with the dimensions and spatial planning of your design, here is a 3D video simulation which you can play as many times as you like.

Remember to your design to the RENTAL market, but this doesn’t mean you can’t be creative, original and eclectic as you like. Push yourself and the boat out because you never know, your design could take the biscuit!

If you haven’t already entered you can do so for free by visiting www.nda.ac.uk/competitions

Good luck folks!!!

SOLD!- Jump on the auction bandwagon and save a fortune

MR CAMERON SAID this morning on BBC breakfast that it will be a  “difficult year” and “we inherited a big  problem so we have to deal with it”. Easily said, not so easily done.
