From the Inside Flap
Self-building has gained a reputation in the popular media as the preserve of the rich. Yet, in actual fact, the average self-build house costs around £150,000 including land, meaning that for many people who build their own home, working to a budget is a primary concern. Just how do you achieve style without spending the earth? How do you maximise usable floorspace and at the same time create a unique family home? The Homebuilding & Renovating Book of Great Value Self-build Homes is a collection of the finest high-quality, low budgets from just £32,000 up to £150,000. They all show how it is possible to achieve a spacious family home in any style on a budget within almost anyone's reach. Above all, the new homes are all evidence that self-building is by far the best way of getting the most house for your money.
