The custom build housing sector is a fast growing section of the community, with thousands of self builders up and down the country waiting to get their projects up and running. As part of the Governments programme to support the self build sector, the Housing Minister recently announced the release of four new sites available for development. The sites will incorporate 70 plots suitable for new self build homes, and will add to the 130 plots made accessible to people wishing to carry out these projects.

The self build concept is viewed as an extremely positive one by an increasing number of people and businesses alike, especially since the government got on board with promotion and finance. Many other European countries have a high percentage of self build homes, in comparison to the UK which has approximately 1 in 10 self built properties, a fact which the government along with several building organisations and companies wish to address.

It is believed that the growth of the self build sector will bring substantial benefits to the UK, and give a much needed boost to countless tradesmen and professionals within a variety of industries. Architects, builders, plumbers, electricians, landscapers, roofers, decorators, plasterers and heating engineers will all gain work as a more and more people begin to plan and design their own homes. Organisations and dedicated websites are consistently appearing, and are chock full of information, advice and guidance for potential self builders. There are also lots of encouraging pieces of anecdotal evidence from existing self builders, allowing people to make time and money saving decisions. This is incredibly useful and can help with informed choices, and a confident and optimistic approach.

Speaking to the Federation of Master Builders at a summit organised jointly with the National Self Build Association, Housing Minister Kris Hopkins stated that smaller developers should seize the business opportunity of this untapped market.

To substantially simplify the whole process when considering building your own house, it is worth sourcing a professional, experienced and multi disciplined building company.
