The National Self Build and Renovation Centre has partnered with NaCSBA to deliver a series of free webinars to help anyone interested in building their own home understand the various stages, and key decisions, involved in a self build project. These one hour sessions are delivered by Self Build Specialist Mike Hardwick and will be hosted on Zoom (free to download).
The first wave will start on Wednesday 15th April at 11am, and will be running the following Wednesdays at 11am, over three sessions. The first session will be packed with helpful information and there will be a chance to ask questions to Mike and the NSBRC team.
Session 1: Budgeting, Finding Land and Design – Wednesday 15th April
Session 2: The Planning process and Building Regulations – Wednesday 22nd April
Session 3: Trades & Materials – Wednesday 29th April
Note: its worth downloading and testing Zoom prior to the event to make sure your system is working in time for the start.
