Open the door to a self-build home

Thinking of building your own home? Here’s the low-down on your options
This four-bedroom family home in Scarborough was completed in 2010, and designed with the main living space on the first floor and full-height glazing to make the most of the panoramic views

Building your own home is the ultimate DIY project. You’ll be able to oversee the design, choose the materials and tailor it to your needs. Although it can be time-consuming and stressful, the rewards are immense: you can save substantial sums of money, and seeing the build through to completion gives a huge sense of achievement. Under 10% of UK homes are currently self-built, but the Government has introduced measures to make the process easier, with the aim of doubling the number by 2020.

Space flows effortlessly in this light-filled house in Cheshire, a potential RIBA house of the year. It’s designed by GA Studio Architects and shows what can be achieved in a restricted site and on a tight budget

About Your Home Magazine

Well, autumn is well and truly upon us but I think there’s something quite comforting about the nights drawing in, and having the chance to curl up on the sofa in front of a roaring fire. In this issue we’ve got plenty of great ideas for making your home super cosy for the coming months. If you’re thinking of replacing your flooring with something warmer, or more stylish, underfoot then make sure you read our fantastic eight-page special on page 36 where we take a look at all the latest designs for floors. Meanwhile, on page 18, you can discover how to use this season’s woodland trend to create the ultimate cosy scheme for autumn. While our craft section this month has even more woodland-inspired projects to add the perfect finishing touches to your home (p.60). Does your kitchen need a quick revamp before it gets busy in the run-up to Christmas? Then take a look at our round-up of the latest looks for worktops and splashbacks (p.50) – you’ll be amazed how easy and affordable it is to give your kitchen a whole new look with this one simple change. If you have young kids, or family with mobility problems, then making your bathroom safe for them can often mean compromising on design, but our feature on page 56 shows you can combine form with function for a bathroom that still packs a style punch. Finally, if the weather starts to turn cold outside, turn to page 100 for some wonderful, warming comfort food recipes.
