What is Custom and Self-Build?

Custom and Self-Builders are individuals who purchase or rent a serviced plot of land and act as their own developer — whether by employing their own design and build contractor or simply configuring certain aspects of the design or finish.

Building a Custom or Self-Build home, you have the unique freedom to create the home that best suits your needs — you can be as involved as you want to be in the process, from designing and managing the process entirely yourself, to employing expert designers and builders to lead the way.
