Self Build Besearch

Before you even consider how to self build your own home you will need to do a lot of research. Books and magazines are one of the first steps into self build. Next step will be self building exhibitions. There are exhibitions held nationwide to assist the aspiring self builder.


Self Build Books

Books are an ideal starting point for research into your selfbuild project. Before my project I spent many, many hours studying what I class as the number 1 book for Selfbuild research. Building Your Own Home  by Murray Armor. Murray Armor is sadly no longer with us but I still think he was the main inspiration for my Self Build.
