We’re excited to be back at the National Self Build & Renovation Centre (NSBRC) on Friday 13 and Saturday 14 May, for the May show, featuring our award-winning Gryphon House as the ‘Star of the Show’.

We of course already knew this build was a star, as it was crowned ‘Best Timber Frame Home’ at the 2021 Build It Awards last November.

Gryphon House is a perfect example of a home that looks incredible, while also delivering on functionality and energy-efficiency. We’re thrilled that the homeowners, Chris and Jenny Shepperd, have agreed to join us in Swindon to tell you all about their stunning home and their self-build experience first-hand. The Shepperds will be with us on stage on Saturday 14 May in the Build It Theatre at 13.00 to share their story.

They’ll talk through the highs and lows of their self-build journey, offering tips and advice, as well as answering questions from the audience. Whether you want to know why they chose timber frame, how they found the project management or what they wish they’d done differently, they’ll be giving the ‘warts and all’ feedback that self-builders really want and need to hear about before embarking on their own project.

We’re also fortunate to be joined by some of the other partners who helped the Shepperds achieve their dream home, including:

Our very own Simon Orrells will be leading the presentation, as well as offering technical details and guidance on timber frame. One of the things that made this project so unique, was that we needed to come up with specific design solutions to help the couple build their dream home. Simon will take the audience through this process, explaining what their challenges were and how they were overcome.

It will be an informative and entertaining slot with a host of fantastic speakers, so we hope to see you there.

In the meantime, you can read more about Gryphon House on our website or watch our video on YouTube.
