For many years now in the UK, new housing has been delivered almost exclusively by the larger, national and local housebuilders. However, this has one major drawback – a very limited choice of design and plot size and virtually no input from you, the house buyer, into your finished home.
Now, there’s a new form of housing emerging called custom build which gives you the opportunity to have a real say in the creation of your new home. It’s the norm abroad – we’re just catching up here in the UK!
Key features of custom build include purchasing a fully serviced plot from a custom build developer and working with either the site architect, or your own, to design a home that’s truly yours. It’s all about choice, flexibility and putting you in control.
There are several routes to a custom build home. Every custom build site will have different variables and the custom build developer will provide you with a menu of options to choose from. Even if you’re hopeless at DIY you can custom build. Choose to do as much or as little of the work yourself with professional assistance and support available from beginning to end.
