Build your home yourself
With Self-Build you simply buy a fully-serviced plot for which we have already obtained a pre-approved planning consent for a home on it that meets an approved design code. The design code lays down the maximum size/height of the home, where it can be located on the plot, and what materials it can be built from.
Providing you stay within the parameters of the design code you can design/build your home without having to get a planning consent.
If you have the skills, you can build the home yourself. Alternatively, you can select your own builder or we can build it for you.
If you need a mortgage we can help you to source a self-build mortgage.
The plot price includes all the planning obligations, the installation of services to the plot boundary, and the construction of the roads leading to the plot. With Self-Build you will only pay Stamp Duty on the price of the plot which can be a significant saving.
As a guide, the cost of designyourhome.com constructing a 4-bed detached home for you on one of the self-build plots is about £200K.
