Services for Self-Builders

The Services that Neat Living Provides for Self-Builders




If you’ve read about the self-build process, and how we guide you through it, you’ll see that this involves Neat Living undertaking all of the building design, planning and building warrant, organising competitive tenders for you and of course the timber kit supply.


You’ll also appreciate that there are activities that are undertaken by others – say contractors to install foundations, undertake the civil works and the fit-out, albeit to Neat Living’s design. We can help by guiding you through this in a cost-effective and efficient manner.


If you are new to self-build this may seem complex and even confusing. Don’t worry you’re not alone. In reality, however, this is tried and tested as thousands of kit builds are completed every year in the UK, so whilst it may be new to you, it’s not new to the industry and we’re here to help you too!


Neat Living provides a range of services created specifically for the self-builder. On this page, you’ll find out what these services are and how they will help you towards achieving your self-build project.

Topographical Survey and Ground Investigations

As part of preparing for a full application for planning, we organise the ground survey, also known as a site investigation (SI) which feeds into the foundation design, road and pathways, incoming services and utility layouts.

Planning and Building Warrant

Neat Living provides a comprehensive planning and building warrant service to help self-build customers obtain the necessary statutory approvals for their new build.



Budget Cost Plan and Competitive Tender Services

A Budget Cost Plan and Competitive Tender Service are two different services that help to determine and manage costs of your self-build.
