Building Your Own Home (17th Edition) by Murray Armor

Each year thousands of people realise their dreams and build their own home. Written by the acknowledged expert in the self-build field, Building Your Own Home has for twenty-five years been the readers' essential reference, helping them through a minefield of conflicting advice and legislation. Building Your Own Home evaluates all the available choices. It helps you to find the right plot, choose the right design, make the right financial choices and shows you how to sort out the planning and other consents.

Packed with over 100 colour and black & white photographs, designs and plans, Building Your Own Home contains everything a self-builder needs to know and is the ideal companion to The Home Plans Book by the same author.
