Building Your Own Home by David Snell

Book Description

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.
