According to an IPSI-Mori survey, 53% of people dream of building their own home, but only 0.025% actually do. Self-build is really hard.
Custom build makes it easier, quicker, and with less risk.
How does it work?
It’s a three step process
We find land & get planning
Timescale: 3-4 years
We look at, appraise, and visit about 100 sites to buy one
We spend up to two years negotiating terms and prices with the owner and getting funders to back us
We spend up to £100k and 18 months to get planning
We build the outside
Timescale: 1.5-2 years
We spend nine months detailing the design to go to tender
We spend 12-15 months negotiating with neighbours and statutory bodies on party wall awards and infrastructure protection
We spend 3-6 months finding the right contractor and up to 12 months for them to build the watertight shell
You create the inside
Timescale: 3-6 months
You work with your designer to pick your layout and your specification
You find your builder to do the work
You move in!

Sounds great, where can I buy?
OK, but I have more questions
