Our Resource Centre provides high quality self build resources and information for anyone interested in building their own home, remodelling an existing property or just gathering ideas and doing research.

Our Free Downloads offer advice on how to save money on your self build, how to avoid common design mistakes and how government legislation may affect your project. Our Design Guides are a source of great ideas from which you can shape the look, feel and layout of your home. In the Technical Downloads you’ll find specification templates which you can use to benchmark the quality of materials and workmanship on your project, and building regulations notes to assist you when dealing with Building Control. The Ten Minute Guides cover a wide range of self build topics from foundations to roofing, and will teach you what you need to know in layman’s terms and without any unnecessary waffle – straight to the point!
