Self Build

Self Build For Your House | Self Build Schemes

What are Self Build projects and how could they benefit you? Self Build has become a popular format for people to use in order to get the house they desire at a much cheaper cost. There are a few different types of 'self build projects' however the main concept is the same. The idea is to undertake a portion of the work yourself, whether that be to manage the project, decorate the house, be involved in carpentry or any other form of trade required for the build. The beauty of this concept is that you can devote as much or as little of your time and expertese to the construction and still save on money.

Self Build Schemes (Investing in properties with other trades)

A popular format for Self Build Projects is where trades share the resposibility of the build and cost. So how does it work? Regardless of the amount of properties being built the idea is essentially the same, where each person not only shares the cost of the land and materials but also works on each property for no fee.

For example: A builder, carpenter, electrician and ground worker decide to buy a piece of land and erect 4 properties to then sell. The cost for the land, plans, materials and other services required would be divided evenly between them. All of them would use their skills to build all 4 properties, and when each house is sold the profit gets divided evenly between them.

Building using this method can cut huge costs and allows bigger projects to be undertaken due to sharing the funding and labour required. If you're interested in starting a Self Build Project and need a building service, feel free to contact us now.
