“Build Manager has been a godsend! The Gold Package is worth every penny! Everything is explained in plain English which gave me a huge amount of confidence.”

Sarah Baulch, Watford

“Now that I have upgraded to the Gold Package it’s great, really useful and with build manager support I now feel confident and ’empowered’ to drive our project forward”

Richard Keracher, Northumberland

“It was great to find professional support specifically for self-builders, that understood the build process but also the challanges of managing your build around busy family life”    

Mr & Mrs Giles, North Lincolnshire

“The free advice Matt & Ben provided in the early stages of our 1st self-build gave us the confidence to project manage the build process ourselves, and saved us over £24,000”

Mrs Julie Teal , Yorkshire

“You’ve been fantastically helpful, I will certainly be sharing your site on social media and recommending your services to other self builders. Thanks again for all your help”

Erica Brinkley-Everard, Suffolk
