Self Build Academy
Getting started is easy. Join our free Self Build Academy and let us guide you all the way through the process of building your own home. To get you started we regularly run two events: An Introduction to Self Build and Making the Most of Your Plot. Plus an opportunity to have one-to-one sessions with a Self Build Expert.
An introduction to self build
If you are considering self build for the first time or still searching for a plot, then this event, held at our headquarters in Great Gransden provides a useful introduction to self build, covering key topics including Finding Land, Designing Your Home, Getting Planning Permission and How to Build.
You'll meet the Potton people who will help bring your dreams to life and then following a tour of the factory you will be able to visit the Self Build Show Centre in nearby St Neots. There you'll see our four stunning show houses - examples of what can be achieved when you build with Potton.
Making the most of your plot
This event is ideal if you have identified a building plot. You'll meet a team of experts who can advise on whether it is suitable to build on, suggest how we can tailor designs for the plot, ways to navigate the planning process, together with advice on energy efficient construction methods and details on project costing.
A factory tour and an opportunity to visit our Self Build Show Centre in nearby St Neots is also included.
