Designing and building your dream home is an accomplishment in life, but unfortunately, sometimes it remains just that, a dream. Building your own home will often come with a heavy financial commitment and no matter how well you plan and budget for it there are always those unexpected costs which can throw the project off and sometimes bring it to a complete halt. Searching for your perfect plot and designing your dream home should be a time of opportunity and immense excitement, not one of stress and disappointment. The My Dream Build competition has been designed to remove the financial burden associated with building your own home and speed up the timeline so you can stop dreaming it and start to live it.

It’s time for you to hit the road and discover the perfect location for your dream build which is why we have put a package together to cover your solicitors’ costs, land tax and the purchase of your ideal plot. When searching for the perfect plot you need to think outside the box, there are plenty plots that come with planning permission, but there are also pieces of land that are perfect for development that may not have been advertised yet. You could also consider plots with an existing building that's in poor condition, this type of plot would already have services and may offer the possibility to demolish the existing house and replace it with your dream home. Once you have identified the area you would like to be in, take a drive or even better walk around your preferred cities, towns or villages to get a feel for the area and scope out potential building plots. You can also take advantage of Google Maps and street view to identify potential plots that could be ripe for development. Whether you choose to google it, drive it or both, we think your hunt for the perfect plot will be even more enjoyable with a possible £200,000 at the ready to purchase.

Once you have purchased your perfect plot in your perfect location, it’s time to start thinking about building your dream home on it. We are going to give you the chance to put £600,000 towards the cost of planning, architects and materials so you can get to work on building the house of your dreams. We don’t all want to live in a pre-existing house and everyone has their tastes and ideas of what makes a property perfect for them which is why building your own home is so exciting, you won't have the constraints of an original buildings layout and architectural type. With so many potential options from a stylish contemporary house, a character barn-style build, a beautiful timber-clad cabin, an environmentally friendly woodland retreat, an idyllic countryside cottage or maybe a modern kit home that can be erected in weeks, you are only limited by your imagination. Whatever your style and design preferences, whether you opt for an expansive bustling city or the majestic countryside with its rolling hills, without the worry of a mortgage hanging over your head and changing interest rates we can only imagine how excited the winner of this draw will be to finally build their dream home.

Once you have built your property, you will want to decorate and furnish it to put your stamp on it and we all know that when you begin costs can quickly start to mount which is why we're going to give you the chance to enjoy £25,000 to style your new build to your taste. From colour schemes, paint and wallpaper, custom made sofas and seating, dining table sets that will fit all the family, kitchen dressers and islands, beds, mattresses and custom-fitted wardrobes. We think with £25,000 to spend you will be happy with the result.

As well as a decorating and furnishing budget you are also going to need home appliances and technology to complete your new property which is why you will have the chance to enjoy £25,000 to complete your home and make it fully functional with Curry’s PC World. From American fridge-freezers, microwaves, coffee machines, range cookers, washing machines, dishwashers, tumble dryers, vacuum cleaners, steam cleaners, small kitchen appliances, cookware and bakeware, gardening tools as well as all your televisions, audio and computing tech, we could go on forever but we are sure you will be able to kit out your home perfectly with such an incredible budget.
