Our clients are always asking us to explain the various aspects of self-building so we thought it about time we developed a training day to provide you with insight and knowledge as we discuss the process generally and answer questions along the way.
The Self Build Discovery Day will expand on Ellie's "Building Plot Tick, What Now?" presentation where she provides a whistle stop tour of building your own home from lifting the first sod to finally toasting the result of your hard labours.
The outline of the day presumes you have planning permission and you are now taking deep breaths because it is all real and you are going to spend more money.....
9.00-9.30am Arrival time - coffee/tea and mingling

Our plan is that you will leave the Self Build Discovery Day armed with information and literature and a new level of confidence and you will now have a broad idea of what you will be taking on as you start your self-build project.
The Self Build Discovery day includes refreshments all day, buffet luncheon, useful literature and contacts.
