Govt. pledges support for custom-build homes
House hunters who want to live in a custom-built home will receive government support, the Communities and Local Government minister has pledged.

Eric Pickles said there was a “blossoming of interest” from people who wanted to build their own homes.

He said custom-built homes need not be the preserve of the wealthy elite: “We’re working with lenders to help would-be self-builders get access to the finance they need.”

Pickles said the government was selling off land to self-builders, and encouraging councils to do the same.

There were 11,000 custom-build projects in the UK in 2012. While ‘self-built’ homes are often individual projects, there is an increasing interest in promoting property development sites catering for dozens of one-off homes.
