I’m new in Sweden, moved here in 07/2018.
My main desire is to build my own country house.
During this time I’ve been searching for an affordable land to buy and to build.
But I always struggle to get all the information I need.
I have my own project, just a simple 2D sketch of what I want. I know in which materials I want to build, all the system’s water/heating/electricity I want.
But to request any specific information or pre-authorization I need a project in the paper.
Here in Sweden I don’t know where to go to request all that.
After that it will be the process about what to search who to hire to start the project, what kind of things can I be responsible to deal during the construction, etc.
Nice to hear about your project.
In Sweden we have some laws and regulations that control what you can build on your land.
You can find information about what you can build on your land in the detailed development plan.
To know how the process works you can go to the municipality (website) where you live and see the instructions for ”Building permit”
Sweden also has building standards and regulations which mean that all your documents and drawings would present that your project handled the requirements.
It’s a little bit complicated if you never have done this before. Most developers hire an architect or construction engineer to handle the drawings, communicate with the municipality and help you trough this processes. I would recommend that.
The company Kontrollbolaget has some experts on building permits and drawings. We will help you through the process if you want.
