Eco Workshops

We know a priority for many self builders is to design an energy efficient home. These free workshops will help you research the many options for building a high performance home, or one that utilises natural materials. We explore the pros and cons of different building methods, the importance of good design, and the merits of different heating, insulation and ventilation solutions and much more.  Attendees will enjoy masterclass talks, panel discussions, live demonstrations and guided tours.
