Walter Segal – Self Build

The self-build property, named after the creator Walter Segal, is a bolt-together post and beam form of timber frame constructor which relies on using all materials in standard sizing, which is how they are delivered, producing almost no waste. From the concrete base to the pre-fabricated panels that the house is built of, the aim is to reduce waste, emissions, cost and time. It has been said that anyone who can use a hammer and a saw can build a Walter Segal house. Some of these can be seen in London, as part of a 1980s self-build housing project.
