BUILDING IN BRICK AND BLOCK - the definitive guide

Brick is Britain’s favourite house building material, and ‘traditional’ brick and block our most popular method of construction. 


It is robust, low maintenance, familiar to all builders and beloved of planners, mortgage lenders and home owners. 


Build Your Own Brick House is a detailed, comprehensive guide to a typical traditional build, from sourcing and buying a plot, gaining planning consent and Building Control approval to a month-by-month breakdown of the build process. 


Written by experienced selfbuilder and SelfBuild & Design consulting editor Gerald Cole, it contains all the essential information and background you need, enabling you to understand, control and assess every aspect of your project.
