Launched in January 2024, Four Steps Ahead, your self-builder safety net!



Are you project managing your build? Struggling to stay organised and avoid self-build pitfalls? No budget to hire a project manager?

House with designs

Four Steps Ahead is a revolutionary new project management software designed specifically for self-builders and aiming to make project management accessible for all. It condenses the knowledge, experience, and processes developed by Four Walls Group over two decades into a handy tool you can take with you anywhere. Your project success is the goal!

According to Checkatrade, “Around 90% of unmanaged building and renovation projects overspend by an average of 20% of the total estimated cost. That’s a whopping £20k overspend for every £100k budgeted for.” A project management company like Four Walls is the best way to mitigate that risk, but many people balk at spending 12-15% of their build budget on professional project management.

The toolkit is designed to support self-builders who want to manage their own build, allowing you to use the same tools as a professional project manager, at a fraction of the cost of hiring one. We’ve also added essential tips and checklists which give you a dose of professional insight to add to the mix. If you need more help at any point, there’s a panic button on the home page that will let you book a 1:1 consultation with us for extra support.

We’re here to help you achieve your dream build


Each stage of your project is broken down for you in order, complete with stage specific tips and a checklist of essentials to make sure you don't forget anything crucial before you move on. In addition to the tips, you'll find a list of templates in the resources section that will help you manage your build like a pro!


Our budgeting tool allows you to create an initial outline budget, record your quotes and track your spend as the project progresses. You'll be able to see at a glance where you're on or over budget, which is the most essential step of keeping control of your costs.


The scheduling tool lets you record start and end dates for every task in your project and convert that information into Gantt charts at the touch of a button, so you can keep track of what's going on and if your timeline is starting to slip.


Cup of coffee

The Four Steps Ahead subscription is just a touch more than your daily cappuccino and can billed monthly to help you better manage your cashflow across the build, or annually for the best overall rate. This means that you can save money on the first year of your build, but you don’t have to commit to the full year where your build timelines may only have months left.

Four Walls Group was born out of a desire to change the face of construction. We believe in transparency, honesty and delivering the very best quality finished home for our clients, regardless of the scale of the project.

Four Walls exists to build beautiful, bespoke homes, and deliver an exceptional standard of extensions and refurbishments. We specialise in delivering dream residences to those who value quality and want to enjoy an ease of experience throughout the creation of their vision. We work happily with both private clients and professional developers to ensure the finished home exceeds your expectations and meets our impeccable standards.

The Four Walls Group consists of Four Walls Projects, Four Walls Homes and Four Walls Developments.

Projects work with clients looking to add value to their existing home through extensions or renovations.

Homes work with clients on delivering their dream home from initial design concepts right through to occupancy.

Developments work with investors and developers looking to capitalise on opportunities within the property market.

As a self-builder looking to create your dream dwelling, Four Walls Homes is your perfect partner for bringing your vision to life. Give us a call to discuss your project today!

We’ve got proven experience in selecting hand-picked teams, bespoke to each project, tailored to deliver the exact skills and styles you need to get to the realisation of your ambitions. With us at the helm of the project from start to finish, you’ll be assured of not only a stunning luxury home, but a comfortable experience getting there.


Our teams apply a systemised, professional, and qualified project management approach to every engagement, so you can be sure we’re working efficiently and effectively to deliver the home of your dreams, on time and on budget.

We believe that whilst the vision for your ideal home should be entirely yours, the tough work of delivering it shouldn’t be. That’s why we offer a comprehensive end-to-end turnkey service, where you’re kept in the loop and involved in decision making, but removed from the time consuming and often stressful work of managing the project.


Founded by Andrea and Claire Bridgeman, the company combines decades of senior level construction industry experience with a little black book of leading professionals and high-end craftspeople that’s literally worth its weight in gold. We’ve carefully curated these relationships over many years, so we have a pool of people at the top of their respective professions to choose from, assembling the perfect team ideally matched to both the project and the client.
