1. What is self-build and custom housebuilding?
What is Self Build?
Self build projects are defined as those where someone directly organises the design and construction of their own home. This covers a wide range of projects from a traditional DIY self build home to projects where the self builder employs someone to build their home for them. Community-led projects can also be defined as self build.
What is Custom Housebuilding
Custom build homes are where you work with a developer as an individual or a group to help deliver your own home. The developer may help to find a plot, manage the construction and arrange the finance for your new home. This is more of a hands-off approach but your home will be tailored to match your individual requirements.
