The first day of the National Homebuilding & Renovating Show always goes to underline just how many people want to pursue the dream of building their own home. This year was no exception. My 10:45 seminar providing an introduction to the basics – and how to get started – was packed and the audience questions were interesting and relevant.
This is the show to come to if you’re serious about self-build. There are bags of seminars, expert advice clinics and loads of great features – including two great oak frame show homes – but as ever it is in fact the stands that are the real stars of the show. My early highlights include the new trusses that mean modern roofs can be turned into useable loft spaces easily and cheaply, as well as a great collection of eco companies.
Come along – we’ll be happy to welcome you!
