Custom Build vs Self Build

In 2011, the Government's Housing Strategy for England, aiming to increase opportunities for individuals and groups to play a role in developing their own homes, introduced a new term; ‘custom build’ homes. Up until that point, the process of building your own home was universally known as ‘self-building’. Confusingly the terms can sometimes be used interchangeably, but they are essentially two different routes to achieving a home that meets your individual needs. Here we aim to unpick the definitions and help you decide which route is best for you.

2010 - The Final Word

There is no denying that 2010 has been another year of ups and downs. Even though the economy is successfully clawing its way back from its darkest depths of 2008, growth is very gradual and somewhat unpredictable.
