Frank Ledwith Magazine review

While I was building our home in 2016-'18, I found the magazine to be very helpful. It was one of the few things that came in the post that was welcome! I liked the regs. explanations, the adverts, the sponsored articles the finished home reviews. I would have preferred more practical advice as I was a hands-on self builder. I'm sure the advertisers wouldn't like to see too much actual building tips though! Like, how to lay a DPC or membrane, how to fit draughtproofing tape, how to get a good finish on concrete etc..

Grace Practical, valuable advice

The magazine is a fount of knowledge about the variety of issues faced by self builders including site selection, new technology in building process and heating and ventilation to providing an east way to connect with suppliers. Thoroughly enjoy reading the case studies provided.

Adam Valuable Information for Self-builders North and South

The website and magazine are both valuable resources for anyone hoping to build their own home. The information on the website covers both Southern Ireland and Northern Ireland and I've included some of my favourite parts below. I'm hoping to become a self builder soon in Co. Down (if planning goes well). I've been a subscriber for around 2.5 years. 1 The projects section is excellent. 2. Building Cost Guidance 3. Newest Tech in Heating and Energy 4. Regulation update notifications 5. Self Build Live Belfast
