What is the Self Build Academy?
Back in 2014 we launched a range of courses which aimed to provide advice, information and guidance to aspiring self-builders. Most of our courses are held at our show centre in St Neots, Cambridgeshire - this means that after attending the course you can browse the five timber frame show homes on-site. Our Academy has continued to grow and now boasts over 10 different courses, events and masterclasses, each tailored to a different stage in your self-build journey. In addition to our courses we have developed an extensive knowledge base and the information provided in our articles is a great place to start your learning. We cover a range of popular topics including; plots, finance, planning permission and house design. Simply click on a topic from our Knowledge Library at the bottom of the page.
