Starting a self build or home improvement project is exciting, but also quite a daunting task! While Build It Live can give you plenty of practical tips and advice, you may also want to consider hiring a project manager.
Even if you have the skills at your disposal, managing your own self build project is time consuming. It may require taking time off work- a luxury not everyone can afford. If this is the case, then hiring a project manager may be the right solution for you. Using a project manager is particularly helpful if you are taking on a large or ambitious project. The manager can liaise with your architect and will be vital in the construction phase. They also take on all the boring bits of self build such as health and safety, giving you more time to think about the look and feel of your dream home. If you want to learn more about the benefits of taking on a project manager, why not check out this handy article on the Build It Magazine website?
