With the recent coronavirus outbreak and most people spending more time at home, it’s easy for thoughts to turn to that self-build project you’ve been daydreaming about.

If you’ve got your heart set on progressing with your own self-build in the near future, now’s the time to carefully plan and consider how  to move forward with your project.

Work out finances

If you’re at the stage where you are ready to embark on the self-build process, then you’re likely to already have your finances worked out.

However, if you’re just at the beginning of the planning stages then you need to work out how much you can borrow or afford in order to fund your self-build, as well as how much you should spend.

Look into how you’re going to split up your finances and start to consider separate budgets for the different aspects of your build.
