Wherever you want to go on your building journey, we will be with you every step of the way...


We understand that every build is different…

On arrival at the seminar, you don’t know what you don’t know. However after all day with our specialists, you do know what you don’t know and better still, you know how to resolve it…

What others say…

Without doubt the most well organised, enjoyable and highly informative self build seminar I have attended.

Excellent and very knowledgeable speakers covered everything I wanted to know clearly and from a real world perspective.

The hospitality was superb and it was great to meet other self builders too.


We were sceptical before the seminar, thinking that it may be sales orientated but it was in fact the very opposite.

The information was very helpful from the various professionals, from the Sips Team through to Architects, Engineers and Financial Planning.

We felt very comfortable with everyone we met on the day.

Anne & Paul

A very worthwhile day. We received more tailored information than is available in books.

A comprehensive range of speakers. We had plenty of time for 1-2-1 conversations at breaks.

I resolved several significant issues and advanced my understanding of how to value engineer the design and reduce project risk.


The seminar was incredibly useful. We learned a lot about the process of building a house, financing it and installing heating, power and water supplies etc.

The day was time very well spent solidifying our ideas on how we want to create our home.

It was also friendly and informal and gave us many chances to ask questions.
