The Famous 7 year plan!
Taking a training course in a specific trade or a general course in Self Build, could pay huge dividends for your own project. Its not just being able to do some work yourself, its also about understanding the processes involved as well as the costs involved. If you are a “hands-on” person, one of the best ways of getting involved is to be the “plumber’s mate” or “gofer” on your own project. It will be hugely rewarding.
