Our Info-Packed Magazine

Build It incorporating SelfBuild & Design is the most practical, information-packed magazine for self builders and renovators who want to create an individual home.

Every issue contains a wealth of in-depth articles on everything from structural systems to materials, no-nonsense design guides on topics like glazed extensions, and of course, inspiring homes that have been completed by real self builders and renovators.

You’ll find our magazine in newsagents and supermarkets, and we have a large following of subscribers. In fact, following our 2022 ABC audit, we are now officially the most popular self build magazine on the market.

Merger with SelfBuild & Design

In 2022, Castle Media acquired SelfBuild & Design magazine. To retain the best elements of both, we merged the two magazines to create Build It, incorporating SelfBuild & Design.

Our Readers

Build It readers range from affluent empty-nesters to growing families. They are hands-on, practical people, with a large proportion currently planning or undertaking a self build or home extension project.
