Grand Designs Live is proud to launch our latest feature - The Self Build Centre! Over the course of the show we will be creating a bespoke outdoor cabin using interesting building techniques. Each day there will be new build experts demonstrating their skills and giving hands on workshops.

There will be a series of talks hosted by The Centre For Alternative Technology discussing eco-innovations, natural building materials and energy efficient housing. Our TV property expert, Louisa Fletcher will be talking us through her top tips on purchasing land and self-build mortgage applications. We have concrete-casting demos from Havelock studio and cob house building techniques from Edwards and Eve Cob Building. Temper Studio and Makeathingaday will be creating a bespoke pieces of furniture from start to finish. Hands on wood workshop classes by Timber Design Wales will teach you carpentry and build techniques.
