If watching a few episodes of Grand Designs has sparked your interest in self build, then you’re in for a bit of a shock.
The entirely pleasant surprise is that building your own home is much easier than you might think, and the vast majority of people go on to self build without any of the drama and worry that you might expect.
In fact, most self build projects would have none of the drama that a mainstream TV programme like Grand Designs requires to be the success it has been over the past 20 years or so.
Self build is certainly less mainstream in the UK than it is in almost all other developed countries in the world, but there is a long-established industry in place to help you – just as it has been helping 100,000s of self builders since the 1960s. And while some people still do decide to do something completely off the beaten track (which, by the way, helps for good television), almost all self builders can rely on team of proven experts to help them along the way.
Because almost all self builders are doing it for the first time (it really is a once-in-a-lifetime experience) then by definition it is all new to them. But so-called ‘package’ companies (such as Potton) can make building your own home as straightforward as those other big lifetime decisions: planning a wedding, or even buying a new car.
