Here at Yorkshire Timber & Builders Merchants we want to help you achieve your dream.

Self Build is securing the rights to a building plot in order to build the house of your dreams. A typical project encompasses a wide range of activities and skills from managing, designing and building the whole house. Planning the process carefully is critical. Bulleted below are the major steps in the build process from the conception through to the finished product:

  • Find a building plot
  • Evaluate building plot
  • Construction options
  • Design options
  • Planning permission
  • Building control and regulations
  • Insurance and VAT
  • Build house warranties

Before embarking on your project you need to be clear about your reasons for self build and be aware that the self build process is likely to cause stress and have unforeseen difficulties – so make sure you and your family are prepared for it.
