By Hand On The Hip - Priya Raghuveer - 1/25/2019


Do you sometimes wish that you could afford to buy the house of your dreams? If you are anything like me, I’m sure you are constantly flicking through the pages of glossy interior design magazines to see the amazing places that some very lucky people can call home. Wouldn’t it be fantastic if you could live somewhere just like them!?

Well, would you believe me if I were to say that you could in fact live in your dream home, even if you couldn’t afford to buy it right now. You just need to build your own! Even though self-build projects may seem quite daunting, especially to those of you with no building experience at all, they can be extremely rewarding. Read on to see if it sounds like something you should look into.


Your Home Will Be Unique To You

One of the main draws of building your own home is that you will be able to create it exactly how you want it. And that means that it will be totally unique to you. You will of course be better off finding a building contractor to help you along the way. All good contractors will know that you are looking for a place to be yourself as well as a space that your whole family can enjoy. If you spend enough time talking these builders through what you want and expect, you should find that they can help you achieve your dream home without too many bumps along the way!

It’s Often More Cost-Effective Than Building

It’s generally quite well-known that building your own home can often work out quite a bit cheaper than buying a ready made home. That’s largely because you can decide on the materials and tools, so if you want to go for cheaper ones, you can do. Plus, a home’s value usually increases once it is complete, which makes properties a lot more expensive to buy once complete.


You Can Use Sustainable Materials

If you are quite interested in leading an environmentally friendly way of life, you might want to try to create a sustainable and eco-friendly home. This is very easily achieved if you do build your own. You will be able to make it as sustainable as you want it to be. If you were to buy a house, there is no guarantee of exactly how environmentally friendly it will be, especially if it is more than ten years old. So, for many eco-minded families, building is the only way forward.

You Don’t Need Any Experience

Lots of people have previously built their own home without having any construction experience at all. It is totally possible to do so as long as you have a good team of workers and contractors around you to help you every step of the way. They can provide you with all the guidance that you need.

So, what are you waiting for? It’s time to design your very own self-build home project so that you can get started!
