The National Self Build and Renovation Centre (NSBRC) will be celebrating National Custom and Self Build Week 2018 – which is taking place May 7th to 13th – by hosting the Spring edition of its popular Self Build & Renovation Show from Friday 11th to Sunday 13th May.

One of the key aims of the week is to help more people understand how many ways there are to build their own home. From buying a plot and commissioning a bespoke new home (as popularised by Channel 4’s Grand Designs) through to the DIY self-build option. Self and custom build is no longer just for the privileged few, thankfully.

At the NSBRC’s National Self Build & Renovation Show, over 250 exhibitors will be showcasing the very latest building products and technologies on offer. There will be experienced representatives on hand to demonstrate, answer questions and provide professional advice. The centre will also be holding a series of events and tours to help encourage people to find out more about pursuing their ambition of building a home.

Harvey Fremlin, Managing Director at NSBRC, says: “We’re delighted to support National Custom and Self Build Week with our Spring show. This year, we’ll be holding more seminars and live demonstrations than ever and our New Build Journey Tour will help anyone interested to visualise what building their own home entails.

“Whatever stage your project is at, there will be experts available throughout the three-day exhibition to look at your ideas and offer feedback on where to start, the best building methods, trades and materials for the job and most of all, support.

“As part of the Housing and Planning Act 2016, local authorities are required to help find land for those who have an interest in building their own home so we’d encourage anyone interested in self or custom build to sign up to their local, council-maintained Right to Build register, as this will ensure there are enough serviced plots available to meet the demand.”

The National Self Build and Renovation Show attracts thousands of homeowners who are looking to undertake a self-build, renovation or home improvement project. Taking place from Friday 11th to Sunday 13th May 2018, there are free advance tickets for the show available from the NSBRC website. Visit for more details.
