Self-build and custom housebuilding
What custom build options are available?
There are various types of custom build projects including:
- Individual custom build - an individual purchases a plot of land and builds a house to live in. They may do some or all of the build themselves, or employ a builder, architect and in some cases, a project manager to oversee the build.
- Group custom build - a group of people come together to design and develop a custom build housing development which they then live in. They may build this themselves or with help from a developer to manage the project.
- Developer-led custom build - a developer divides a larger site into individual plots and provides a design and build service to purchasers. This gives people a chance to tailor an existing house design to suit their own preference and needs.
