This is just a brief outline of the house self build Material sourceing, which will be outlined in our blogs.

We will be talking about handling sub contractors on the construction site, how much DIY jobs that can be done or which is financially the most viable option. Some times you can be a busy fool (we will explain later).
Also how you can source cheap materials from sites like
www.donedeal.ie
www.ebay.co.uk
www.amazon.co.uk
www.theinsulationstore.ie
www.munsterhrv.ie

To name but a few!!!!!!!

These will save you thousands, this is obviously very important without been able to source cheap materials for the house self build we probably would not have been able to finish the builds on budget.
Most of the materials we sourced from Classified sites were brand new and never used before, one of the benefits about the recession.
