This SelfBuild Forum, is for those who are undertaking, planning or have an interest in SelfBuild in the UK.
SelfBuild is a generic term for those who wish for whatever reason to build for themselves. This may involve undertaking the great majority of the work, or standing back and managing the work of others. In practise it is usually a combination of both. It is not usually used to describe the person who has a single builder undertake all of the work including the project management.
The forum represents SelfBuilders in the United Kingdom (England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland), and is limited to these geographic areas to make its content relevant. Questions are welcomed from elsewhere around the globe, of course, but the advice given may not be applicable to these areas.
