The United Kingdom is moving to simplify what some are calling a “perplexing mish-mash” of outdated home building rules. According to a government official, there are now three sets of standards just on how to build a staircase, and guidance provides for two phone lines as well as broadband connection in home offices, regardless of whether they’re needed. Making building regulation rules simpler will encourage people to take more risks and build their own homes, the official says.
