Every year, around 10,000 people in the UK build their own home. However, at present, there is no robust data currently collected on the scale of the sector.
Self-Builders come from all walks of life, including:
- young people keen to get onto the housing ladder, with self-build being an affordable option for their first home;
- families needing more space and wanting a larger property that is bespoke to their needs;
- retired people wanting to downsize or build their dream home;
- DIYers looking for a project to sink their teeth into.
Whatever your motivation, whether you are a total novice or someone with plenty of experience in the construction sector, self-building can be an accessible route to a new home.
The section below aims to address a number of frequently asked questions about self-build and custom build housing, which we hope will assist you.
