Safety gloves may be needed as self-build bounces back

Demand for safety gloves may rise as self-building is making a comeback after the recession, an industry expert has said.

Chief executive of BuildStore Financial Services Raymond Connor said the last couple of years has seen "steady growth" in the demand for such homes and the number constructed.

"With the changing housing market creating the perfect conditions, self-build is set to become the norm, reaching similar levels to those in Europe," he suggested.

And Buildstore's own database of self-build plots saw a 20 per cent rise in subscribers in the 12 months to August this year, Mr Connor said, with over half the 8,000 plots on offer providing opportunities to build a new home for less than £100,000.

During the summer, a new 15-point plan aimed at boosting the output of self-builds in Britain was launched by housing minister Grant Shapps after a meeting with the National Self Build Association.
