How we can help you

Tools for your self build journey

Moving you closer to building your own home

Building your home is incredibly rewarding, and it’s easier than you think! Most self-builders don’t lay bricks themselves, but manage professionals to build their home. If you don’t want to be hands-on, then commissioning a custom build house could be the right route.

Councils now have to grant sufficient planning permissions to match the number people who have registered an interest in building their own home. If you do one thing, make sure you’ve registered.
