There’s nothing like spending time in an oak framed building to get a feeling for how your own timber framed project could develop. That’s why we love to meet clients in our show home in Devon.

But we know that it isn’t the easiest place to get to for many of our clients, so we now have a permanent exhibition space at the National Self Build and Renovation Centre in Swindon – just off junction 16 of the M4.

If you haven’t heard of this centre – the NSBRC – before, and you’re considering a self-build project, then we do recommend a visit. It is a fantastic resource as a source of education on everything from foundations to roofing and all that goes between.

You can find out about eco building techniques and the wonders of modern technology that can be literally built into your home, and more boring but fundamental things like groundworks and foundations, insulation options, windows and doors.

The centre has a large exhibition space – like a permanent version of the National Home Building Show at the NEC; there is a life size model of a Victorian house that has been renovated in stages so you can see what’s involved in a renovation project; a show home gives you the opportunity to see an up to the minute modern home packed with technology and experts are on hand to give you technical advice on every aspect of your project, financial advice and help on finding a building plot.

The centre also runs events and seminars. This is the UK’s biggest show for anyone wishing to make their home more eco-friendly or considering an eco-friendly self build. Watch out for the events at NSBRC as experts will be on hand at this show to help you with any aspect of green building and there will be over 75 seminars covering a vast range of topics.

We have a temporary stand in the trade village with images of our work for you to see and a full show stand currently under development that will be a permanent presence at the NSBRC, so we hope to see you there.
