An increasing number of people are deciding rather than buying a house, they will build their own from scratch. The tv programme ‘Grand Designs’ certainly inspired a lot of people to follow suit, and since then, many more people have purchased land and built a home of their own. Many people who are experienced do the whole thing themselves, others prefer to use a company such as these self build homes Birmingham. But whatever you choose to do, there are plenty of advantages to building your own home…
You can choose where to put it – As long as you can purchase a plot of land and obtain planning permission, then it is up to you where you build your home. There are plenty of helpful sites where you can find plots of land, as well as asking your local council and asking around the area you wish to build in if there is anyone selling land.
You can Choose what route you wish to take – From self-build homes, to custom build homes to kit homes, it is worth researching all of the ways that you can build a home of your own as there is a way that suits everyone, and you will end up with something that is really yours.
It could make you money – If you are careful with your budgeting and plan well then your home could be worth a lot more than what you paid for the land, and the cost to build it.« Back
