This collection on the self-build home movement connects burgeoning research in the United Kingdom with commentary from international figures. Focusing on community, dwelling, and identity, the chapters engender new dialogues on self-building, calling for more recognition of the social dimensions of the process. By investigating the development of structures, the practices that shape them, and the experiences of the residents, these essays offer policy planners tangible perspective on the affordable housing crisis and one potential response.
