Building your own home can be one of the best life style & financial choices a family can make. It can bring exceptional financial benefits if you ‘put in’ a lot of the work yourselves and control your costs.
Flosh Meadows serviced self build development close to the UNESCO World Heritage site of The Lake District National Park can be your first major step in the procedure of “select your plot, design your home, organise your money and build your home” .
Much self & custom build information is available, such as “The Housebuilders Bible” by Mark Brinkley and Allan Corfield Architects with their downloadable ebook.
Author and serial self builder David Snell with 14 projects under his belt, on ‘The Hub’ explains how you can stop costs from running away from you.
David has worked out the cost per square metre of his last five projects:
2001 – £706
2004 – £1,063 (but for a more avant-garde design)
2007 – £900
2009 – £880
2016 – £861
