Manage your budget, manage your build!
Your home building project is likely to be one of the largest single spends in your lifetime. Looking after your finances, in a controlled and planned manner, will help keep you on track and on budget. Losing control of your cash can lead to stressful delays, unexpected costs and potentially an unfinished build with no money left.
The NSBRC Guide to Managing Money will give you the foundations for a successful, worry-free project allowing you to focus on the key decisions and enjoy the excitement of creating your new home. Ideal for anyone taking on a self build, renovation or large scale refurb for the first time, our new virtual course is delivered by an experienced presenter with a background in designing and building homes.
From how to raise finance to budgeting, negotiating on prices to re-claiming VAT, this course will ensure you avoid costly mistakes and maximise what you can achieve with the money you have available.
Our Guide to Managing Money course is delivered by Potton’s Managing Director, Mark Stevenson.
Having worked as a builder and construction professional for almost 30 years, Mark Stevenson is Potton's Managing Director where he now helps self-builders build their own homes.
Whilst Mark describes himself as a ‘professional builder’ as a result of his career in house building and timber systems manufacturing, he has specialist knowledge of timber construction and extensive expertise in finding land and appraising building plots.
