What is self-build housebuilding? (Taken directly from Tewkesbury Borough Council)
Self-build is where the individual partly or wholly controls the design, funding, planning and building of a home. This can involve building part or all of a home oneself or alternatively hiring a contractor to do the same. Self-builders can work as individuals or as a group, for their own occupation.
Custom housebuilding is where the home is custom built to the individual's specification as opposed to being designed and built by a construction company to a standard specification for sale.
Self-build can offer an alternative to traditional home ownership and an opportunity to own a sustainable and high quality designed home.
Tewkesbury Borough Council is committed to supporting both affordable and market housing and is working to make it easier for more people to build their own home.
