NEW ROUTES to self build

Looking for a more straightforward path to identifying a viable, development-ready plot and building your dream home? Find out how the custom build approach can deliver the right site and the right support to help you make a success of your project

Traditionally, if you wanted to create your own house, you first needed to find a good plot of land, commission a bespoke design, work out how to get services to the site, seek planning permission and secure Building Regulations approval. Getting to this stage involves a lot of time, effort and expenditure – and that’s before you’ve even brought in the builders to do the actual construction work

It’s all worth it, of course: get it right and you’ll end up with a high-quality bespoke home that’s perfectly in tune with your lifestyle and represents excellent value for money. But wouldn’t it be great if the process was a little easier to manage? Well, the good news is that in recent years a number of new routes have opened up that are taking some of the complexity out of the process, providing a more hands-off route to finding a viable plot and creating a tailor-made house.
