What is the floor area of your project in sq ft or sq m?
Could you tell us any interesting facts or remarkable features about your project?
The bungalow that we purchased in 2004 had a serious damp issue, so we decided to knock it down and start again as we liked the village and had a descent sized plot to build on. The new house is A rated, has a balcony overlooking the garden and we opted for a Structural Engineers Certificate rather than NHBC.
Experience at the Centre
How many times have you visited The National Self Build and Renovation Centre before?
We visited NSBRC once prior to starting the build.
Did you use any exhibitors at the NSBRC?
Yes, we took advice on selecting the best timber frame suppliers for our project.
What did you enjoy most about your visit to the NSBRC?
Being able to compare all the different aspects of the project all at the same time.
Would you recommend the NSBRC to a friend, and if so, what aspects of the Centre would you recommend?
Definitely, having all aspects of your project in one place. Of particular use was the comparison and evaluation of the quotations from the timber frame companies. Also the sourcing of self-build finance.
