Oxford Green Week

How to build your own sustainable home

Greencore will give free, no-obligation advice to self-builders and custom-builders at a workshop during Oxford Green Week. The workshop will be held at Oxford Brookes University between 1pm and 4pm on 21 June.

The workshop will give insight into:

  • The basics behind building your dream home
  • Planning and initial designs
  • Build phase and completion
  • An honest view on the time, effort and costs involved
  • Tips on how to avoid common self-build mistakes

The session is ideal for anyone who has thought about building their own home, but hasn’t done anything about it yet.

Homes made from healthy building materials

Living in a Greencore home means you benefit from better indoor air quality and high comfort levels. That’s because all our homes are built using as many natural materials as possible. In fact, we aim to minimise the amount of harmful substances in all our homes.

Here's what our customers are saying about us:

Dominic Newland

"The comfort factor in our home is just amazing. In fact, it's the middle of November right now and the house is a constant 23 degrees. And that’s without the heating on! It's just incredible"

Helen Andrews

"We chose Greencore to build our new house because we liked how supportive they are. They always make time to answer our questions and they really listen to every concern we have"

Linda McCorkindale

"I'd recommend Greencore to anyone, whether they want to build houses in an eco-friendly way or not. The real benefit to me is the low energy usage and the money I'll save on fuel bills"
