Construction Company in Plymouth 01752 905030
For thousands of years people have building their own homes. They like getting involved and as a contractor I find it easier to work with the owners and provide exactly what they need for their home. Plus, it is much more enjoyable for us to help the homeowner make a final decision and create a home with ultimate comfort and security. Besides this, there are many other reasons why self build homes are much more beneficial to their owners.
You Have Choice and Control
Personally, I don’t like those commercial characterless buildings in UK that all look alike. From my experience, people are not happy with such homes. That’s why I see many people building their own homes, because they seek control over it. Self building gives you a unique opportunity to create a house that will fit your lifestyle and which you can call a home. Any changes that the owners require are easy to adapt and integrate and there is enough space for changes in the future. Self building actually removes all the restrains and limits when it comes to creating a comfortable home that will meet the needs of the owners and their own way of living.
You don’t have to spend a fortune in order to build your home; it is actually an easy and affordable route towards tailoring a home according to your needs. You can expect to recoup more money from your investment into self building since there is no profit margin that you are operating. Also, if you buy a plot under £125,000 threshold, you won’t have to pay any stamp duty, no matter what is the value of the completed house. What is more, self building can save you plenty of money on VAT. New build housing has zero rating for VAT on labour costs, while the VAT charged on building materials can easily be reclaimed after completion. Another reason why self building is more affordable is that you can make your own decision about where to save or spend money. For example, you can choose not to build a deck at the moment and instead invest a bit more into a bigger kitchen. Also, you get to choose your own materials and opt for some less expensive ones that won’t even hurt the environment.
Chance to Make It Green
I find it essential to have a choice of creating an eco-friendly home. This is exactly what you get when opting for self building. You are in control of the building materials; you can choose which type of insulation you want in your house and you have the chance to completely devote your home to being friendly to our environment. Since everything is up to you, you can choose which sources of energy you want to use. For example, you can ask people like me to set up solar panels, wind mills or any other renewable source of energy. All this is closely related to affordability, since eco-friendly investments are bound to pay off in the long run and save you plenty of money.
