Self-Build Shows and Events

If you’re considering self-building, renovating or improving an existing property, you may want to pay a visit to a show to get some ideas for your build. With so many suppliers and like-minded self-builders attending, shows are great opportunities to make connections and help you plan your project. As well as talking to other self-builders and learning from them, you can see the latest innovations the industry has to offer and how these could be applied to your future home.
