    But, and itís a big but. Depends how much you want to be involved. I was much more involved than I wanted to be, but I couldnít afford the £2.5k plus vat of the proper building firms round here. So I had to be more involved, it was stressful, but cheaper.
    I have absolutely no problem getting fully involved, I've already said that I will demolish existing garage and decking, I can even get a local friend to pop down and dig out footings etc if it saves time and money, more than happy to order all materials required through a local merchants as well.
    Basically if it saves me money then I'll get stuck in.
