Choosing a self-build home type
Last updated: 15 July 2019


Before starting to build your own home, be sure of exactly what you want. Think about:

  • what sort of home you need and want
  • where you want to live
  • roughly how much you can afford to pay (including how much you can pay in cash and how much you'll need to borrow)

This will help you decide if you can afford to build your ideal home, or whether you'll have to make compromises on size, design or location.
