Self build housing is when you organise the design and construction of your own home.
Community self build projects involve a group which is formed either on its own or is brought together by an organisation. The ‘self-builders’ work on each other’s homes until all the units are complete. They can also subdivide a piece of land into plots and organise the construction of their home individually.
If you work with a developer, either as an individual or as part of a group, to help create your own home, it is called custom build housing.
If you’re interested in building your own home, including setting up a self-build group, you can find more information on the Self Build Portal website and the National Custom and Self Build Association website.
