Product Description

From the Publisher

An inspirational collection of self buit homes - packed with hundreds of great colour pictures and the inspirational stories of the families that built them.

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.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Purchased this book in June 2012 (used). The description did not make it clear that the featured projects are from late 1990s to early 2000's ie before the housing boom and everything cost at least twice as much as it did 10 years ago. Some of the designs are mildly interesting and the cost breakdowns useful although quite out of date. No real detail on construction methods which is included which is where many savings can be made, mostly about interiors which can cost as much or as little as you want. Overall it is more of a book you would be happy to look at in the surgery reception for 5 minutes to pass you time, but no good as a (current) aid in achieving a low cost self build home.
