The Build It House is a pioneering real-life project designed to give you a unique insight into the process of self building your own bespoke home.
Launched in 1989, Build It was the first UK magazine for self builders and home renovators. Our goal was simple: to bring you the practical advice and inspiration you need to successfully create your dream home. And the same is true today.
As we approach our 30th birthday, we’re taking our mission of being the most focused, practical resource for self builders and renovators to the next level by building our own house. Follow Build It’s self build journey as we share the highs, lows and learning points of our real-life project with our readers
