Self Builders’ Own Stories

Hear real self builders talking about their experiences

Self Builders’ Own Stories is an opportunity to hear from people who have already completed a self build or renovation project. Hear real self builders and renovators talking about how they went about creating the home of their dreams. Learn from their mistakes, hear their top tips and ask them questions about their experiences.
