If you’re considering building your own home, the cost of the project is likely to be your biggest concern. Whilst it’s difficult to compare the cost of steel vs wood on a like-for-like basis, building with steel helps to cut construction costs as all components are designed and manufactured off-site, ready to be assembled. In addition, as precision manufacturing techniques are used, there is chance of error, helping to reduce delays in the construction process.
