So to start with I would advise that you read
some books. The absolute favourite book of mine was "Building
your own home" by Murray Armour". Murray Armour is sadly no
longer with us but his book lives on and is updated regularly. He was classed
the "Father of Selfbuild". In association with Amazon we can offer the
following books at a discount price.

So who is buying it and why? The majority of purchasers are drawn from
Britain's growing army of selfbuilders, people building new homes or
renovating existing ones, who appreciate the frank and at times brutal
appraisal of their efforts. However there is also a large number of
architects, surveyors and builders who sing its praises. The information
in the book is detailed and infomative yet the presentation is succint and
often witty. If you just want to find out how the British build houses,
this is a fascinating read. If you want to actually build one yourself,
then frankly you'd be nuts not to have read this book from cover to cover.
