Whether you’re planning a new build or some work on your current home, creating a tiny home, dreaming of renovating a stone cottage, want to improve your DIY skills and knowledge, or simply fancy the idea of learning alongside others for a week outdoors, this is the ideal introductory course for you.
All of the skills learned on-site will be relevant and transferable to your own individual projects. Our instructor team will be very happy to chat with you about approaching any project using the same skills taught on all Build School courses.
