We are selling our house at present and, having not found another property we like and can afford, we’ve decided to plan our own build instead.
We will have around 90k deposit once sold and can get a mortgage for about 125-130k. We hope to, with this money, get the best and biggest plot and shell we can. We’re not hoping for a finished product, just a liveable shell to continue work on ourselves for a year or two. 3-4 beds, modest size, Timber Frame kit with small customised changes. nothing too fancy, just a blank canvas that is watertight that I can work on.
I’m planning on being involved in the build myself as much as is possible but have no specific trades behind me in this area.
How realistic am I being?
What is the best step by step process I should follow to do it?
many of your articles have been great help so far in enlightening me on the subject.
