Managing the budget

Mr and Mrs WilliamsMr and Mrs Williams have moved house several times over the years, and eventually grew tired of all housing estates looking the same. They decided to create a house of their own, one that would be different to anything they could buy on the existing property market. 

They found a plot in East Ilsley, near Newbury whilst visiting the village, and snapped it up in early 2006. Although their plot came with outline planning permission, the William’s had to wait a total of 14 months to get their plans approved by the local planning authority.

As a project planner by trade, Mr Williams devised a proper project plan, which he split each section of the build into a manageable work package. This helped Mr Williams manage his overall budget, and the purchase of materials, and worked brilliantly alongside BuildStore’s stage-release Accelerator mortgage.

Mr Williams has thoroughly enjoyed the challenge, and is pleased with his new house, which is designed around his family’s lifestyle. He adds: “I thoroughly enjoyed managing our self build project, and was very impressed with the level of support I got from BuildStore.  The Accelerator mortgage really helped me to budget properly throughout the build and allowed me to concentrate on the project without worrying about finding money to pay the bills.”
