As Britain’s longest running self build magazine, Build It magazine is your indispensable monthly guide to custom home building, DIY and renovation.

Each issue is packed full of inspirational and informative readers’ homes, as well as expert advice on issues from budgets and planning to project management and design.

What’s more, every edition contains a selection of in depth features on key building systems, construction materials and project guides on everything from wetrooms and kitchens to loft conversions and basement extensions.

The magazine is laid out in accessible sections including real life success stories, home improvement, practical building, expert advice and planning – so there really is something for everyone.

We pride ourselves on being the practical magazine for ‘doers’ rather than ‘dreamers’ – making Build It magazine essential reading for anyone about to embark on a building or home improvement project. If these are the people you want to reach, Build It will help you to make that crucial connection.
