8 Steps to Self-Build

Creating Your Plan

The first stage of any successful venture is creating a well thought-through plan. Visualise your dream home, what does it look like, how does it feel, how many rooms does it have, what purpose do these rooms serve? Once you have a clear idea of these, sort out which are wants, which are needs, and which are desires.


Creating your financial plan involves evaluating your assets, understanding your borrowing capacity, and familiarising yourself with the specifics of self-build mortgages. Ensure you have both liquid assets and potential borrowings to fund your project.

Buying Your Plot

Selecting an ideal plot involves considering location, cost, size, and planning permissions. Find potential plots, have them surveyed and valued, secure planning permissions, and base the size of the plot on your chosen Deeside Timberframe design.

Costing Your Project

One of the most critical parts of the whole development for self-build is to work out how much it is going to cost. This depends on the size, design and how involved in the process you are. Will you be project managing and/or doing the building work yourself or hiring in professionals do to it?

Choose House Design & Timber Frame Package

To realise your self-build vision, hiring professionals like architects or timber frame companies is recommended. From selecting a designer, creating a design, to preparing detailed drawings, you could opt for individual architects, house designers, or buy a pre-drawn or bespoke timber frame kit from us.

Choose Builder With Deeside Timberframe

Planning Permission Protocol

Obtaining planning permission is a crucial legal step in the UK home building process, subject to local needs, development plans, and regulatory interpretation. To ensure compliance, engage with your local planning authority early for valuable guidance and advice.

Building Regulation Protocol

Compliance with Building Standards is mandatory for construction projects, ensuring health, safety, energy conservation, and accessibility. It’s your responsibility to adhere to regional Building Acts which outline these legal regulations and promote sustainable development.
