In the UK around 10% of new homes are self build or custom build dwellings, i.e., homes specified by the homebuyer. That sounds like quite a lot until you learn that across the EU the figure averages around 50%, with Austria being over 80%.
Self build delivers the home you want but presents a number of challenges, from the long, expensive planning process to having to manage all construction works. It is no surprise that the majority of self build projects go over budget according to a report commissioned by Homebuilding & Renovating .
A custom built property delivers all of the benefits of self-building without the headaches, stress, planning risk, contractor problems and financial uncertainty. Buyers receive an exceptional home built to their unique specification, delivered on time and on budget.
To fund the plot purchase and cost of construction a range of finance options are available. For details please visit our Mortgages page.
Custom build presents the opportunity to have a home built to your own design and specification.
Purchase a fully-serviced plot that already has outline planning consent and receive professional assistance with the house design and internal layout
An authorised contractor then constructs your bespoke house for a fixed, turnkey price.
“Custom build is the perfect house buying experience – your dream home built to your own specification and delivered for a fixed, turnkey cost.”
