How to make your self build project a success in 2020

How to make your self build project a success in 2020 

While renovating an existing property can provide endless design possibilities, a self-build project is sometimes a more exciting and ambitious way to create a dream home.

We’re big fans of self-builds at DWL because not only are they a great way to spend time with a loved one and get those creative vibes flowing, they also allow you to create a bespoke space that you completely fall in love with.

If getting started on a self build project is one of your goals for 2020, we’ve put together some handy tips to help make your home project a roaring success.

Take inspiration from Built It magazine

A self-build project is a huge commitment, but it doesn’t have to feel daunting. Not only are there a variety of useful self-build schedule templates online, there are also specialist magazines designed to support you with each stage of the process.

Some great self-build bedtime reading comes in the form of Build It magazine, a publication firmly at the heart of self-build community. Every issue comes packed with tips, tutorials and expert advice and they also offer online planning templates to help your project maintain momentum.

Get to grips with new products at Grand Designs Live

Speaking of live events, making time to attend trade fairs and self build exhibitions is one of the best ways to drive your project forward. That’s why in May 2020 DWL will be returning to the iconic Grand Designs Live in London where you can experience our luxury products and seek advice in real life.

At Grand Designs Live you can meet over 400 companies, get inspiration from four different projects zones and attend hundreds of free talks and demos – all designed to help you complete a self-build project with confidence. And who knows, when your project is finished you may end up being featured on an episode of Grand Designsitself…
