Managing Your Build fills in the gaps that other building books leave and focuses entirely on build management matters. If you employ a builder he'll manage the actual construction elements. But there's far more to building work than this. You will be the overall manager controlling the entire project from conception to completion. Andrew's way of working on his own projects involves him as the main contractor and project manager on a day-by-day basis. He doesn't usually employ 'builders' (main contractors) though he has, of course, done so - - he works directly with tradesmen and craftsmen. This hands-on, practical background gives him an invaluable perspective on building problems and their solutions. He has spent 30 years listening to skilled individuals in the building trades and to construction professionals at every level. He continues to listen today. Most people, when asked, say that managing their build has taught them a huge amount about life and about themselves and that they've gained skills they can take forward into other areas of their lives. Hopefully, managing your build shows you how to successfully organise the build of your own house, conversion, refurbishment or extension so as to make it fun, life-changing and rewarding.
