What others say….

Thanks very much for the day, it was both informative and enjoyable.

Charles is a good speaker and covered pretty much the total build. Could more have been said on different ways the site and its aspects might determine the form of the SIPS construction? Wee apertures and ‘heavier’ kit on north faces, bigger openings on south faces – that sort of thing. I think Charles covered it all.

Once again thanks, and I’m looking forward to being able to return to you with a defined project.


I only have praise for the staff, the hospitality, and the thorough coverage of all the topics. Charles gave us plenty to think about even changing the shape from a “T” to a rectangle! Room sizes, Ceiling heights, Windows, from triple glazed, to double to fixed!


Thank you for a most excellent seminar today for us self-builders. Very good presentations and everything explained very well. Lovely lunch and home baking too!

Can I thank you ALL for a brilliant and informative day. We were really impressed; it has certainly encouraged us more to go this way.


It was a really good day and most informative.

For us, at the outset of our potential project, it was ideally pitched with good overview but enough detail to give us a realistic understanding of what we can expect going forward. Clear and transparent talks made the day race by.
