Embarking on a project?

If you are about to commence on a project, it would also help us build a better understanding of the key issues facing the emerging self build community if you could also provide some information in the additional fields below about you and your proposed self build project.

For example, if we know in which region there's most demand we can lobby local and central government to provide sites here; and if we know roughly how much budget you have we can adjust the information on this website to more closely match your needs.

 

 

What are the biggest challenges for you in getting your self build project off the ground? Rank these in order below from 1 to 6 - 1 being the most challenging and 6 the least.

So, if your biggest challenge is finding a site put a '1' by this, and if your next biggest challenge is getting finance put a '2' by this, and so on.
