Introduction to Self Build - Webinar

This is the place to start your self-build journey. It’s not quite a little bit of everything, but it’s a little bit of most things to do with self build. We cover briefly, what self build is, the Right to Build, and other government support for self builders. We begin to explain how to find a plot of land and touch on the process of creating a design brief for your new home. This is a good place to start to see if self build might be for you and your family.
