Building your own home can be one of the most rewarding yet testing ventures of your life. One of the most common issues which blight many a self build is poor control of the budget which can result in frightening overruns on costs. For many embarking on such a venture will often mean risking just about everything they have. Even if it doesn’t mean risking everything it will usually involve the sort of figures which make most people at least a little sweaty under the collar. Fail to plan and plan to fail. It’s often said but often ignored. There can be nothing worse than finally getting to build your dream home only to become financially stretched in the process.

Before starting any self-build project you need to get serious about costs. Price up as much as you can and be very realistic about time-scales. You need to look at what money you have to hand and what is coming from other sources. Once you begin setting out plans make sure you stick closely to them and avoid costly changes of direction once building is underway. Your budget will need to reflect the true costs of materials and labour in the location you are building. It’s also wise to set aside up to 15% for the unforeseen issues which nearly always arise. If you’ve maxed out your available sources of funding there may be little room to get extra money at a later date. It should go without saying but make sure any loans you take out for the build come with competitive rates of interest.

What About a Timber Framed House?

In contrast to traditional masonry construction, timber house construction is light in weight which allows the building envelope to heat up very quickly. In a house, where heating is intermittent, this fast response can result in increased comfort and energy saving.

CarbonNeutral Timber

Timber is a natural material and requires minimal energy to process it into construction materials. During its growth, timber absorbs carbon dioxide and stores the carbon in its cellular fibres. When it is burnt, or rots away, the wood releases a quantity of carbon equal to the carbon it has already absorbed through its lifetime, thus making it carbon neutral.

Prefabricated Timber Panels

Prefabricated timber houses are manufactured as panels under factory conditions then transported to the site where the building is assembled. The panels are constructed with timber studding and composite wood board materials, known as sheathing, which are nailed onto the exterior of the timber frame to form the rigid panel.
