Today I’ve been contacted by Rob, an architect who lives in Wolverhampton and works in Birmingham. Rob is interested in developing a self-build scheme in Wolverhampton.
Self build has a lot of benefits – not only will it be significantly cheaper than buying an equivalent house from a developer, it can also have environmental benefits and build a real sense of community with fellow self-builders.
Rob wants to build relationships with local people who might be interested in supporting the scheme or even building their own home. He wants to make links with people through Make:Shift and other community organisations. This is another great idea and you can get involved in discussing it further at Make:Shift on 9 November.
