This book will tell you all you need to know about building your own home. It will help you make an informed choice and prepare you for what lies ahead.

Many self-builders are acutely conscious of the environmental impacts of construction, so this guide provides straightforward advice on the materials to avoid, suggests cost-effective eco-friendly alternatives, and provides information on how to re-use as much as possible.

The Self-build Survival Guide is particularly useful to people who are considering combining their building project with the demands of working full time off site and maintaining family life meanwhile.
