A Blog About Why You Should Consider Building Your Own Home

Here at Arc Design Services Ltd, many of our clients are looking to build their own home so we thought we’d outline the key reasons why you should consider building your own home.

Individuality – Building your own home from scratch is the perfect chance to create something that is completely unique and different and ultimately matches your needs. Imagine living in house that has been designed around your own personalities, tastes and expectations for space the number of bedrooms and bathrooms is entirely up to you! Even the positioning and size of the windows and doors and the size and design of the garden can all be designed around your needs.

Features – bespoke homes can be at the cutting edge of technology and many enjoy the best features available which is definitely a bonus! Under floor heating, labour-saving features such as a central vacuum and automated home technology can also be added a fraction of the cost you might expect. The thought of controlling the security, climate and lighting at the touch of a button sounds great. These features can revolutionise your lifestyle and may not be something an existing house can offer.

Cost effective and profitable - The one thing that’s properly playing on your mind is the thought that building your home is beyond your pocket. This isn’t always the case. By going though the process of arranging design and have a personal input with the house building process, it can actually save you money compared to the market value, and one golden rule to remember is the cost of designing and building a house, at the end of the process should easily be worth more if all goes well!

All types of people choose to build their own home, from young couples and singles starting out on the property ladder to families and those wanting a retirement pad. Self build is often the only way to achieve a home to fit your specific requirements.
