Direct Route

Please pay attention to: Building Control ( Amendment) Regulations SI 9 2014

Building Control (Amendment) Regulation SI 365 of 2016

A direct route is when you physically and mentally project manage your build. What this means is that you have to look and find subcontractors , arrange for materials, oversee the build and make sure that it is up to the standard.

To put it another way, you are the building contractor, you make all the decisions, spend the time on site and gain all the profits.

This is the cheapest route to build your house if you are prepared to spend the time on it. It could also be the most enjoyable route as you feel a sense of satisfaction at the end when you see the results.

But be warned, this is not for the faint hearted as there is a lot of challenges involved and you need to keep your stress level down and deal with the problems as they come up.

Good luck and enjoy the process of self building.
