Would-be renovators and self-builders should see 2009 as an excellent time to start a building project. The National Homebuilding & Renovating Show, on at the NEC from 19th to 22nd March can help you make the most of your home.
A 34% nationwide increase in the number of plots available for self-builders makes 2009 an excellent time to consider building your own home. Additionally, with the opportunity to negotiate hard on labour and materials prices in the current economic climate, potential self-builders and renovators could make significant savings on their budgets if they plan carefully, shop around and do their homework.
Whether you are renovating, extending, building or wanting to make the most of your home, now is a great time to visit The National Homebuilding & Renovating Show. In its seventeenth year and attracting almost 50,000 visitors over the four days, the 2009 Show offers over 500 exhibitors, 96 free seminars and masterclasses, The Eco Homes Show, ‘Ask the Experts’, Specialist Technical Zones and much more.
Take along your plans, outline drawings or just your ideas and speak to one of the many experts at the Show. Michael Holmes, TV presenter and editor in Chief of Real Homes and Homebuilding & Renovating magazines, will be heading up a team of experts specialising in renovating, design, planning, self-building, and greener living.
The National Homebuilding & Renovating Show is on at the NEC, Birmingham, from 19th to 22nd March 2009.
