The type of self build homes we are able to build will be largely dependant on our finances. The beauty of building your own home is that it can be designed specifically to meet individual needs and tastes so there's no one-size-fits-all approach. 

The budget will impact the shape, size, specification and materials used. Therefore, when planning a new project, prospective self builders can find it quite difficult to estimate what is possible for each band of build costs.
