You have likely heard both these terms before, especially since the new s ‘Help to Build’ scheme was announced by the government in April.

In simple terms self-build is when you take on all the risk yourself and have full control over the project, custom build is when some of the development has been done already, which reduces your risk, but it does mean that some of the choices will have already been made.

A common misconception with self-build is that you are the builder, laying every brick when in reality only 8% of projects are done this way. The vast majority either project manage or hire a building team like Pawlus to manage and supply/organise all the trades.

Would you like a custom or self-built home?
