There’s nothing like getting advice and support from friends and family. The next best thing if you’re building or renovating your home is meeting self-builders who have been through the process and can give you the benefit of hindsight. Two sets of homeowners are at Selfbuild Live to share their experience on a 1-2-1 basis; just put your name down at the clinic on the day to book a 20 minute session. The self-builders will also be participating at the Bootcamp for a Live Panel Discussion.

The projects

Grafficar House

Jason and Mary Taylor built their own home in the Co Down because they couldn’t find anywhere to buy. They were very fortunate to be gifted some family land for a site in the countryside and at the top of a hill with some incredible views. They hired a main contractor to save on time and avoid mistakes that could happen with direct labour to first time self builders although Jason himself is an Architectural Assistant and was heavily involved, ‘a kid in the candy shop’ as recalls the feeling of being able to design his own house.

Nicola Thorpe

Nicola’s new house was built in a stunning location to a stunning design. What could go wrong? For one she had to contend with planning permission as the site is in an Area of Outstanding Beauty. And with such an ambitious design also came some problems sourcing products, including the floor to ceiling glazing. The build took just under a year and a half; they moved in May 2016. The building method was cavity blockwork.
