I AM a final-year student at the University College, Salford, reading for an honours degree in building management.

My chosen dissertation subject is concerned with construction techniques used by self-builders.

If any readers have been involved with self-building their own homes and are willing to share their experiences with me, they can telephone me on 01254 760786 or write.
