For your information central Government legislation uses the following terminology:

There are a number of ways in which self builders can procure and build their own home.

Contractor built one-off home: this is the most common form of self-build. The home owner manages the design process including finding the land, hiring a consultant and securing planning and building regulations approval.

Self-built one-off home: similar to the above, except that the home owner does most of the construction work themselves.

Kit or package home: the owner finds the plot of land and then works with a kit home company to finalise the plans. The kit company then supply and erect the house.

Developer-built one-off home: the owner finds a developer with a site and a design that meets their requirements, and the developer then builds it for them.

Supported community self-build: a group of people come together to share their skills and build a number of houses collectively.

Independent community collaboration: a group is formed to acquire a larger site which is then split in to individual plots. The home owners then organise the design and construction of their own home, sometimes collaborating with others to order materials in bulk.

Developer/contractor led group project: a developer/contractor finds a suitable site then seeks a number of self-build clients and builds the homes to their specification under contract.
