You know what’s wonderful when it comes to owning a house that you built yourself? Knowing that you are the very first people to make memories inside it. It always seems strange, whenever a moving out is in order, to think that some other family will replace you in your home, and that all the precious time spent in the different rooms has now vanished, to be replaced by a different set of actors. We love to know that something is ours, and has been designed by us, for us, and you simply can’t get that without going down the self build route.
Now, this may not be for everyone. It requires a lot of patience and involves the suffering of a lot of stress for all concerned, not to mention the financial issues surrounding the whole thing. Nevertheless, if you can afford to, and afford the time and patience, it is perhaps the most rewarding project that you can have a go at. Sure, living in a pre-built house is easier, but why settle for the conformity and mind numbingly mundane styling of the average house? You can do whatever you want when you self-build, create your own perfect home, and with the experience built up from the process change it whenever you need to. A copy of Self Build & Design is a must for any considering treading their own path. NB
