Self building, of course, does not necessarily mean picking up bricks and physically getting stuck in on site. In fact, less than 10% of all homebuilding projects involve the owner being significantly involved with the actual building process.
Instead, most self builders will be involved in the creative side of the process:
- formulating a design brief for the house designer
- selecting a builder
- choosing the internal and external fixtures and fittings.
