The study has been used to feed information into the production of a manual, aimed at professionals working on site and project management with self build schemes, together with other professionals involved, and the self builders. It is understood that everyone will have their own approach - and also that projects vary greatly - so the manual is not generally prescriptive. It sets out many issues of consideration and discussion between participants, suggesting suitable stages for the consideration of each issue and the people who should be involved in discussions.
