Building a home to rent, sell or live in yourself is a popular way of making money in the property market. Buying a derelict building or patch of land and building a new house on it has many advantages, the financial ones often being the main reason why people decide to tackle the project. There’s also the fact that you can tailor the home to your needs, you can build exactly what rooms you want and where. Some people struggle to find houses on the property market that meet all of their requirements and so building their own would be more appropriate.

So, how can the average homeowner make their living space more attractive while working within a budget?

Before commencing any full or partial home refurbishment, it is essential to plan ahead, divide and do the project in stages. This way work will be carried out quicker and smoother, avoiding any unforeseen jobs and misunderstandings or even damages to already finished parts of the project.
