Join the Self Build Academy® & build with confidence
To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Potton homes, we used our extensive experience to develop a new range of workshops and seminars and created the Self Build Academy® with the aim of making our knowledge available to all self builders.
Our Knowledge...Extended to You!
The Self Build Academy® started with four core workshops and seminars, each targeted at different stages of the build process. Now, in 2016 we have over 14 different courses and events to help guide you through each stage of your self build journey.
Courses to Suit You...
No matter what your current self build status our Self Build Academy® has a course for you. Whether you're right at the initial stages searching for land, or ready to build we can guide you through the process. Academy course listing...
