Self Build Homes for a Bespoke Living Experience
Searching for a new home is all about compromise, and even if the potential abode seems perfect in many respects, there is usually at least one major downfall. Maybe one of the bedrooms, kitchen or bathroom is much too small, the house is next to a busy motorway, the garden gets no sun or there is no garden. Once you have found somewhere suitable, there can still be numerous problems like the sale falling through for a number of reasons. Many people become disillusioned with house hunting, and wish to live the dream of building their new home from scratch in the way they desire.
The concept of building your own home is quite a new one in the UK, but not so in other parts of Europe, where a high percentage of self build is experienced. For instance more than 80% of properties in Austria, and over 50% in Germany and Belgium are self built. The UK government are actively encouraging the population to consider this practice as a serious option when deciding to relocate. Government measures have been put in place to facilitate the process of self build, like the £44million made available to assist self builders and communities planning self build projects. Self builders are also now exempt from the Community Infrastructure Levy [CIL], a charge which discouraged 1 in 8 potential self builders from starting or continuing their projects according to a 2012 survey.
Concept to Completion Service, Project Management, Design & Build
There are a now number of self build organisations and websites offering a wealth of advice and tips on the pros and cons of self build, what it entails, decisions and first steps towards your self build dream. One of the major concerns when contemplating building your own home, is the daunting thought of sourcing and dealing with a variety of different companies. Architects, designers, builders, electricians, engineers, plumbers, roofers, plasterers, all need to be checked out, chosen, set a convenient date to commence work and then paid. This will require a substantial amount of virtual juggling and going from pillar to post to keep updated on everybody's progress. There is also the possibility of disputes arising from lack of communication, or work failing to flow seamlessly from one tradesman to the next.
