If you’re a self-builder, everyone will tell you that knowing where to start can be really daunting. That’s why we’re hosting our inaugural event, ‘The Secrets to Self-Build Success’ this spring.

Join us at The National Self Build and Renovation Centre (NSBRC) in Swindon on Friday 11 March 2022 between 09:30 – 16:30 while we help you navigate the building journey.

Who will be there?

The Secrets to Self-Build Success is free to attend and has a fantastic line-up of expert speakers. Joining on the day will be: talented architect and The Royal Institute of British Architects’ first female president, Ruth Reed; renewable technology professional, David Hilton from Heat & Energy Ltd; self-build mortgage expert, Tom McSherry from Buildstore, and structural warranty specialist Simon Middleton from Protek.

All speakers will be available for individual meetings during the event, along with building consultant and architectural technologist, Andrew Last.

What can I expect?

The event has been designed to help you get all the information you need when setting out on your self-build journey. There will be a range of information sessions available, including seminars and pre-booked 1-2-1 sessions. Topics include: design and architecture, self-build mortgages, structural warranties and renewables. Click here to see the agenda.

There will also be real life experiences from two couples who have recently completed their dream homes. These former Frame Technologies’ clients will provide first-hand insight based on their personal self-build experiences. You can hear about the highs and lows of self-building as the homeowners share their real life ‘case studies’, including the 2021 Build It Awards winner of the prestigious ‘best timber frame home’ category.

The winning home, Gryphon House, is a stunning contemporary 5 bed, two-storey house set in a spectacular location in Warwickshire. The Build It Awards judges commended Frame Technologies for the contribution they made to the final result by suggesting design and engineering improvements for a beautifully detailed self-build home. You can learn more about this build on our website here.

We work with self-builders across the country to create stunning, bespoke, energy-efficient timber frame homes and we’re thrilled to be able to share our knowledge and top tips.
