News: i-Build — 10 things every self-builder should know.
Before embarking on a housebuilding journey.
We were delighted when i-Build asked us to share our “10 things every self-builder should know before embarking on a pre-fabricated housebuilding journey,” for their July issue.
The article details the importance of build quality and its influence on the quality of the living experience.
We say prioritising comfort in your self-build project should be number 1 priority. Think about building fabric, align your design and delivery process. Scrutinise layouts, think about life’s practicalities, activities and how your life might change in the future. There’s no point having a beautiful home if you can’t live in it comfortably.
We also highlight the need for consideration of internal climates, the difference between building systems and the need to fight “the green sheen.” A good living environment is key to a healthy home.
