Gibbs & Dandy to co-host event for aspiring self-builders

Builders merchant Gibbs & Dandy is hosting a free half-day event for self-builders to meet a wide range of key suppliers and view a number of unique self-build show homes.
Run in association with self-build home provider Potton, the event will take place on Saturday 10th May at the Potton Self-Build Show Centre in St Neots, Cambridgeshire.

With the self-build market growing rapidly over the last 12 months, Gibbs and Dandy will be on hand to talk about the benefits of working with a builders merchant and how to get to grips with the cost of building materials.

Andrew Cushing, Gibbs & Dandy marketing director, said: “We’ve seen a huge increase in self-build projects across the region in recent years as people are beginning to realise that building your own home can be not only achievable, but also very affordable. This event is all about overcoming any reservations potential self-builders may have, and providing the expertise and inspiration people need to get started on building their own dream house.”

Self-build enjoyed a substantial boost in this year’s Budget, with the government pledging £150 million to make 10,000 plots available UK-wide for self-builders, and to extend the Help to Buy equity loan scheme to the self-build market.

Potton marketing manager Fae Perkins said: “The recent growth in the self-build market indicates now is the perfect time for self-builders to meet with a range of suppliers to create a structured build programme.

“This event is an ideal starting point for self-builders to gather information directly from industry expert suppliers with years of experience behind them.”
