Would a self build or barn conversion be cheaper for first time buyers?

Would a self build or barn conversion be cheaper for first time buyers?

Printer-friendly version

I have read a few posts regarding mortgages for self builds but have a few questions around barn conversions.

Here's a little bit of a background: We're first time buyers with joint income of around £55K with around £15K deposit. Potentially we have access to free barns and land.

I'd like to find out a little more information on mortgages around barn conversions or self builds. Would a self build be cheaper?

Would be great to read someone's experience/thoughts. Would it be at all feasible or should we join the norm and get a 'first time buyer' mortgage for a house/flat?
