Join us at the Potton Self Build Show Centre, where our friendly team will share their expertise amidst the stunning surroundings. And don't forget to explore our five fully furnished self build show homes during your visit.

The briefing was informative and entertaining. I learned a lot about the pitfalls of building your own dream home, as well as ways of getting around them. Much food for thought and I'd recommend that anyone thinking of undertaking such a venture does not do it lightly and asks the experts!
