Internal Finishes Workshop

Once the main structure is completed the last stage of the build is traditionally called the finish or second fix, you’ll have a huge choice of methods to complete the look and feel of your house.  The NSBRC are pleased to host a brand new workshop for self builders and home renovators to help you make these decisions.

The internal finish will give the impression, not only of your personal taste and preferences, but also the feeling of the quality of the build.  From wall finishes, architraves and mouldings, floor coverings, doors and stairs a huge amount of thought will be given to the design, materials used and layout in the early part of any design project.  This workshop will introduce you to just a few of your options and give you some excellent ideas on how to choose the best solutions for your home.

During the day, you can enjoy a range of seminars delivered by our experts, panel discussions, live demonstrations and guided tours.
