    Welcome from another Kent Funster, The only issues that i am aware of re self builds, is the insurance aspect, but others on this site may reassure you.:thumb:

    Welcome. Another Kent resident!
    A friend of mine has just completed his self build in an LWB Peugeot panel van. Mind you he is a cabinet maker by trade. It looks very professional and he had no problems getting it insured.
    There are quite a few self builders here that will be able to offer advice as you get on with the build
    Good luck

    only once had problems regarding self build being refused entry to a site and yes you can get very reasonable insurance

    Hello and welcome to Fun, we have a self build section, if you go to forums above click on it, then scroll down quite a bit you will come to Self Build, you could probably get a good bit of information from there.

    Enjoy your project and keep us up to date how you are getting on. One of the best investments you will make it the £10 subscription for fun, probably save you that over and over again :thumb:

    Welcome to fun
    A lot of self builders get insured with Adrian flux, I think they can insure you during the build but there is a time limit on completion.
