Build Your Own Ski Chalet

Building your own property in the Alps, if you can find a plot of land to buy is a win/win – you can get exactly the house you want to your own specifications for the same price or less than an existing chalet, and as it will be built to the highest eco standards you’ll save on bills far into the future too.

Even if you’ve had no previous experience of building, this option can be for you. Steven Downs, of ECSUS Design architects, has renovated and built property all over the Alps – from fully managed projects to helping eager self-builders. He specialises in building ski chalets with Kingspan TEK – highly energy efficient SIPs (Structurally Insulated Panels) that are precision cut off-site and can be assembled on-site within 3 weeks.

He says: “Building your own home can be incredibly rewarding. Start with your wish list and we can scale it to your budget and level of involvement from there. Making the most of views, location and ease of access should be your initial concerns. Negotiate purchase of the land on the condition that full planning permission is obtained prior to completion.” ECSUS offer a free initial consultation – visit their website
