Ever wondered what it is like to build your own home? This exhibition takes you behind the scenes, into the everyday lives and experiences people who have. It displays visual material produced with and by selfbuilders to tell the story of selfbuild in contemporary Britain from the perspective of selfbuilders. From the diverse motivations that lead people to build their own homes to their everyday experiences of building, it makes clear the importance of social relations in the project of selfbuilding.

This exhibition has been prepared as part of the ESRC-Funded Project ‘Selfbuilding: the production and consumption of new homes from the perspective of households’ (Grant Number: ES/K001078/1).
