Whether you are looking to build your dream home, renovate an existing one or even interested in property development then the Selfbuild Bootcamp is just what you’ve been looking for.

Did you know that the average self-builder wastes £50,000 on their project due to bad planning and a lack of knowledge? The experts of the Selfbuild Bootcamp will outline the required and basic elements to building or renovating your home before you start your project, ensuring that you avoid wasting money.

The day is dedicated to giving you the knowledge you need to start and finish your project successfully. With in-depth courses covering the main topics of planning, budgeting and managing, you will also learn what plots, designs and materials suit your personal needs. You will get the opportunity to speak to fellow self-builder and renovators, suppliers of the latest materials that you would need and the all-important experts from whom you can learn so much whilst enjoying complimentary refreshments.

Sound good yet?

It keeps getting better! The Selfbuild Bootcamp has teamed up with Grand Designs to offer you the chance to win a FREE placement at these interactive workshops. Not only will you receive a booking for a full day, you will also gain FREE entry to Grand Designs Live running alongside the Bootcamp (14 October 2017, NEC, Birmingham)!
