There are many good reasons to self build a home in a period style (even if the pastiche estates of the 80s and 90s do not set the best example). Sometimes it is a planning requirement to match the neighbouring properties, but often it is simply because historic architectural styles hold much appeal.

These homes show that you can build a new home with all of the charm of an old building, but without the age related issues that can blight them.
