The Most Cost-Effective and Comprehensive Way to Move Forward with Your Self-Build Project


Offer expires in:

If you’re getting started on your self-build project, or even if it’s underway, chances are you have nagging fears…


  • What are the pitfalls you need to avoid in this daunting process?
  • How can you benefit from expert guidance without losing your shirt on costly consultants?
  • How can you stop your dream build turning into a living nightmare?

We know you have these fears because we’ve had them too.

Self-building is a complex process, with the chance at every turn for your dream project to crash and burn.

Planning consent, building regulations, budget control and managing contractors are some of the biggest challenges you’ll face – and any one of them could sink your project if you’re not equipped with the right tools and knowledge before you start.

If you’re serious about getting your self-build right…

If you want to avoid the common and expensive pitfalls that curse even the most promising of schemes…

And if you’re smart enough to know even a small investment in expert support and advice will pay handsome dividends…

…here’s what you need.


The Hartwyn Self-Build Primer is your next step on your self build journey


In this short, easy-to-access online course you’ll dig into the detail involved in building your own home.

Over 4 units of around 40 minutes each we’ll cover:

  • Planning permission and how to minimise the chance of refusal
  • Building regulations, to make sure you don’t have to re-do expensive parts of the build
  • Finance, clearing up the complexities around pricing and budgets
  • Dealing with contractors and how to ensure you don’t end up with cowboys on your build

If you don’t understand these essential elements, or if you get them wrong, you risk being dangerously exposed.

The Self-Build Primer is the simple, cost-effective solution to that problem.

It’s suitable for anyone, whatever your level of experience.

And it’s available to you, on this page – for a strictly limited time – at a fraction of the price you’d pay elsewhere.

What’s the Price?


In putting the Self-Build Primer together, we invested more than £10,000 in time and expertise to craft a course that we know addresses key questions and problems for you.

Not to mention the decades of experience in the construction industry we bring to it as well.

We could realistically sell this course for £2000 – that’s what you would pay elsewhere to benefit from a similar level of knowledge and expertise.

But we’re on a mission.

We believe in self-building and we believe in people like you, pursuing your dream.

Because of that, we want the Self-Build Primer to be within reach of anyone who needs it so we have made this one-of-a-kind course available on our website for just £497.


As a thank you for being here, on this page you can get the course at a 60% discount, and pay a mere £197.

This special offer is only available to you for a strictly limited time.
