Self Build Starter Pack

We know that while many people would like to build their own home, they never take that first step, simply because they don’t know where to start. It is for this reason that we created the Self Build Starter Pack to help aspiring self builders get started with their self build journey. Within the Starter Pack there a number of one page worksheets to help you make some initial preparations for your self build journey.

Here is what you get:

  • Checklist - one page checklist to help you get started with your self build

  • Brief Worksheet - 8 questions to help you write an initial project brief

  • Site Questionnaire - 16 questions to help you identify site constraints

  • Cost Estimator - 8 part formula to help you estimate your overall project cost

  • Clarity Slider - 7 sliders to help you prepare for your self build journey

  • Flowchart - a high-level overview of the main stages in a self build project
