Oxfordshire building firm, Greencore Construction, is hosting a free housebuilding workshop during Oxford Green Week in June.
Greencore will give no-obligation advice to self-builders and custom-builders during the workshop, which is being held at Oxford Brookes University between 1pm and 4pm on 21 June.
The workshop will cover the basics behind building your own dream home. From the plans and initial designs to the build phase through to completion, it will give you an honest insight into the time, effort and costs involved and tips on how to achieve your visions avoiding common mistakes.
The session is ideal for anyone who has thought about building their own home, but hasn’t done anything about it yet.
Anyone interested in attending the workshop is advised to book a ticket quickly as there are only 50 spaces available. Interested parties should be aware parking is not available on campus but is available at Thornhill Park and Ride. It is also possible to cycle (including by Oxonbike) or walk.
See behind the scenes at a self-build home
Following the workshop, Greencore will open the doors to one of its self-build properties in the local area. This rare opportunity will give visitors a real sense of what can be achieved through self-build. This house is in the final build stages and visitors will be able to hear about the process first-hand from those who have been involved.
