About Mike Cruickshank


Hello and Welcome! I am delighted that you are looking into self-building your own home.  I am passionate about Self-Build and have helped literally thousands of self-builder’s in the UK and beyond achieve their dream of building their own home.  I have personally built homes on two occasions, once in Aberdeen in 1991 and again in Donegal, Republic Of Ireland in 2008.  Each time the sense of achievement and fulfillment far outweighed the considerable financial benefits of self-building.  
I am now committed to helping others achieve their dream of building their own home.  I am grateful to be regarded by my peers as one of the UK’s leading experts on Self-Build. read more...
