About Build It Magazine – the UK’s most practical self build title

About Build It magazine

Build It magazine is the UK’s longest running self build title. We pride ourselves on being the most practical magazine for self builders and renovators. Let us be your indispensable guide to custom home building, DIY and renovation.

Whether you are building from scratch, converting, extending or renovating an existing property, Build It will be an invaluable part of your preparation. Each issue is packed full of inspirational and informative readers’ homes, expert advice and tips. What’s more, every edition contains a selection of in-depth features on key building systems and construction materials. Our project guides focus on everything from wetrooms and kitchens to loft conversions and basement extensions, allowing you to specify a tailor-made, individual home.

The magazine is laid out in accessible sections, including real life success stories, home improvement, practical building and planning. There really is something for everyone and we pride ourselves on being the magazine for ‘doers’ rather than ‘dreamers.’ We are dedicated to helping real self builders to realise their dream on time and on budget.

As well as our monthly printed magazine, our dedicated website is there to help you with your project. Our online articles are essential reading for anyone about to embark on a building or home improvement project. Learn from other peoples’ mistakes, gain practical tips and get inspired. Browse our product directory or ask one of our experts a question – our website really is a fountain of self build knowledge.
