The most cost-effective and comprehensive way to move forwards with your dream project

First and foremost we are builders and trainers so we understand that you’re going through a complex and daunting process . Beginning that process armed with knowledge is your ticket to success and the best way to avoid costly mistakes. We know from experience that there are some things you must understand for this to go smoothly, even if someone else is doing the work for you.

We have designed our Self Build Primer to be the next step on your self build journey. We will give you the tools to assess your project, identify potential pitfalls, and provide solutions to problems you didn’t know you had, or better yet, empower you to prevent them from happening in the first place. 

Plus, as a bonus, we'll give you unlimited access to our fortnightly ask-me-anything clinic for 3 months.  These are online drop-in sessions where you can ask me anything about your project, the course, or the craft in general.

In this short, easy-to-acess online course you'll dig into the detail involved in running your own project.

If you don't understand the essential elements of a self-build, you risk dangerous exposure to costly mistakes. This course is the simple, cost-effective solution to that problem. 

It's suitable for anyone, whatever your level of experience.
