Planning on constructing your own house or going on a self building plan may be a cost saving technique but starting on this plan may be as good as starting you own family. Self build directory will extend its help for you to make your plans real. These directories will provide you a list of suppliers for both the construction materials that you need and for the services if you have not decided about how to get some manpower to do all the building.
Self build directory will provide you with the necessary information that you need about the supplier by directly providing you the supplier's contact number and address. With the help of an internet access, you will easily find a number of providers from different self build directories in alphabetical arrangements of A – Z. Unlike the usual directory such telephone directories, self build directories neatly categorized the services that you need in your self building plans. Among the categories given are Project Planning which includes Site Finding, Estate Agents, Solicitors Finance, Insurance and VAT Guarantees and Warranty Schemes, Architects and Designers, Surveying, Energy Assessment & Project Planning, Engineers, Structural, M & E and Building Control. A category on Siteworks, Services and Materials which include Foundations, Builders and Building Services / Equipment, Ground Works and Contracting, Plant and Equipment Hire / Scaffolding, Water Treatment (Purification / Waste), Tanks, Water and Fuel Storage, Alternative Power / Renewables (Wind, Hydro, Solar and Photo Voltaic) and Timber and Builders Merchants are also incorporated in the directory.
Structure and Building Envelope, Interior Installations, Fixtures and Fittings, Exterior Work and Product Restoration, Renovation and Traditional Skills are also one of the major considerations one must take note of when initiating a self build, and luckily these are also all provided in the self build directory.
With all the given considerations and factors that one must consider before self building, it is quite compensating to think that a directory where you will find every help that you need is available at a single grab or a one click using the internet. Contacting the right supplier at a good timing may even warrant a good discount price on the construction materials especially when it is not only the materials that you are buying or contracting from them.
Self building needs assistance. It does not literally mean, you do it all your own. The hammering alone and the putting up of the wood if you are planning to self build a wooden house or the mixing of cement is impossible to do by just self help. You need hands. It is but important though that you manage and take control of everything while the house is under construction. That alone is self build. It might also help you to browse first and take note and list those suppliers which offer a good lower price when it comes to services and materials offered and make a comparison and decide on who gives it the lowest among them. With this, you will certainly be able to save more than you think.
