Self-Build is creating your own home through design, from start to completion by a variety of methods.  Your home will be built tailored to your budget, your requirements and your preferences.

Why self-build?

Building a bespoke home gives complete control of your budget therefore maximising value for money.  It gives full control of specification and allows for far more choice.  There is a sense of achievement in knowing that every penny has been spent wisely in producing a home that you are fully satisfied with as opposed to buying a ready made home from a development that may not have the quality you demand.  Also, in effect, you have saved the developers profit for yourself and built it into the quality of your home.

How do I go about self-build?

There are differing ways to go about your project…

  • Instruct an architect, obtain quotations from various trades and manage the construction directly yourself.  A bit of experience is helpful.
  • Instruct an architect as above and self-project manage but contribute to some of the labour tasks required in conjunction with the individual trades and timber frame supplier.  This method can make savings on the budget.
  • Instruct a design and build company to give fixed price for every element of the build and manage it on your behalf.  This method still allows for your personal input at the design stage, specification and the finishing’s.
