We want you to enjoy the self-build process as much as possible and to be as involved as you wish to be. We’re more than happy to offer ongoing advice and guidance or run the whole project for you; the decision is yours!
Whether it’s the much loved Generation Z Lego architecture, or post-1950’s brutalist architecture, at Self Build Heroes we are experts in all things design. From small extensions to luxury Self Build Homes.
Often the most critical element of any self build project is getting the building foundations of your self build right if you are to be successful in creating your dream self build.
Insulated Concrete Formwork, known in the industry as ICF, is a mainstay in the self build journey and, in order to create your dream self build home, this complex construction technique is vital.
Timber frame houses are architectural marvels and many would argue that nothing looks better than a timber frame self build home. We’re here to discuss why we think choosing timber is a great decision.
