Documenting your self-build journey: Instagram inspiration

There are many factors to consider and questions to ask yourself when taking your first steps on your self-build journey. From finalising your dream design to choosing your fixtures and finishes, and every important step in-between: each phase marks a momentous moment that will shape your future and your future home, extension or outbuilding.

A wonderful way to look back on your journey is to capture each milestone as they unfold… For example, your groundworks: although this stage may not always look aesthetically pretty for a quick snap, it is a fundamental stepping stone to progress your self-build project, and with this in mind, we recommend you ask yourself early on how you may like to document your journey.
