Self build projects are those where you directly organise the design and construction of your own home. This covers a wide range of projects including a DIY self build home to projects where the self builder employs someone to build their home for them. Community-led projects can also take place as self build.
Custom build homes are where you work with a developer as an individual or a group to help deliver your own home. The developer may help to find a plot, manage the construction and arrange the finance for your new home. This is more of a hands-off approach but your home will be tailored to match your individual requirements.
The council holds a register of people interested in self build and custom build in East Suffolk.
