Building Your Own Home: The No. 1 Bible for Self-Builders Everywhere [9780091910839]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Hundreds of thousands of us renovate, convert, extend and improve our homes each year, and one-third of all new detached homes are self-built. If you're looking to build your own home from scratch or work on your existing property, this is the one and the only book that you really need. Building Your Own Home has been updated and expanded by David Snell, acknowledged expert and guru in the field of self-build and it remains the best book on the subject. Packed with authoritative advice, charts, diagrams and photographs, this fully illustrated bible contains everything you need to know, from finding and buying a plot of land to explaining planning and building regulations, financing the project, buying materials and choosing the design. In addition, it also gives an insight into the costs and problems encountered by self-builders in a varied collection of case histories.


AUTHOR: David Snell has been in the property and building industry for over four decades. In the last thirty-four years, he and his wife have undertaken ten self-builds, the last two of which, are featured in this book. He is a contributing editor to Homebuilding & Renovating magazine, an expert and columnist in the Daily Telegraph's Saturday Property Clinic, Bricks and Mortar and has been a consultant on various radio and television programmes. The co-author of The Home Plans Book and The New Home Plans Book, David was for many years a close friend and colleague of Murray Armor, the author of the first fifteen editions of Building Your Own Home. He now lives in a luxury self-built bungalow in Gloucester but there are already plans afoot to do it again.
