Self-built homes in the main are cheaper, greener, and better made than mass-produced estates. In the UK we have one of the lowest self-build and custom-build sectors in the developed world, running at around 8%.

The ‘Help to Build’ scheme announced by the government in April is backed by £150 million in new government funding, self and custom home building can become a realistic option to get onto the housing ladder through lower deposit mortgages.

Housing Secretary Rt Hon Robert Jenrick MP said:

“The scheme we have launched today will help the thousands of people who’d like to build their own home but who’ve not yet considered it or previously ruled it out.

Our plans will help get more people on to the housing ladder, ensure homes suit people’s needs like home working or caring for relatives, whilst providing an important boost to small builders and businesses too.”

Have you ever considered building your own home?
