Building your own dream home from the ground up can be exciting, but for many, it remains just a concept. Despite this, we constantly find ourselves in awe of homes that we see on our TV screens, for example Grand Designs, where homeowners come up with lavish and unusual creations.
Currently, only around 13% of new homes in the UK are self-built, but this figure is increasing. The government are trying to help the custom and self-build sector by removing some of the barriers to build and by offering various financing options.
At Oakmasters, we think that the self-build route is an experience that more people should consider. We know that it’s easy to be put off by the sheer scale of the undertaking, or perhaps you are worried about going over budget or over schedule? However, there are many reasons why self-build is a good option to choose. There really is no better time to turn your dream into reality than now:
9 out of 10 self-builders choose to hire professionals to carry out the work, which is why at Oakmasters, we have a range of services, to help you throughout the whole process. We can provide supply and installation options, design consultancy, planning design, building regulations details and applications, plus much more.
If you’re looking for further help and advice, there are many different self-build events taking place across the UK, with the opportunity to speak to experts, browse products and be inspired. Or take a look at our oak framed homes gallery and our case study from Mr Childs, who created his very own dream home with the help of Oakmasters.
