Self Build Home

To self build or not to self build?

That's the big question on the housing minister's lips! Here's an interesting article published on BBC News Magazine Self-Build: Should people build their own homes?

According to the article, the government wants to double the number of people building their own homes, but also asks the question "Is it wise to encourage the population to take up DIY housebuilding?".

Although there are a number of television programmes on self build and property developing, such as Grand Designs in reality, few Britons follow the Grand Designs model.

The article goes on to highlight the fact that other countries are way ahead of the UK in terms of numbers of self built homes and how self build homes can save cash.
