You’ve been working and saving hard to get a deposit on a house but the thought of spending your hard-earned money on a house that still needs a tonne of work can be heartbreaking! It may well be worth investigating the idea of building a new home in the current economic climate if you can secure land that already has services installed.

In the following infographic, Wellington builders Green Abode, have highlighted 5 tips for building your home on a limited budget.

5 key points to building on a limited budget: 1) Build Small 2) Location 3) Bank Loan 4) Keep it Simple 5) Materials

Green Abode homes are designed to be energy-efficient and as eco-friendly as possible. This doesn’t necessarily mean a big mortgage (although they may cost a little more upfront, in the long run, your energy bills will be significantly less than in a standard timber home).
