October 24 – 25, Royal Highland Centre, Ingliston, Edinburgh

Following the success of the first Scottish Homebuilding & Renovating Show, Edinburgh in 2014, which attracted over 5,500 self-builders, home renovators and improvers, the show is returning to the Royal Highland Centre, Edinburgh, on October 24 – 25, 2015.

The Scottish Homebuilding & Renovating Show, Edinburgh, sponsored by Anglian Home Improvements, is the ideal place to meet self-build and renovation experts and gives visitors a one stop shop to source all the products, services and advice for building or renovating their home, while professionals can hear about a range of innovative solutions to help builders and small developers improve efficiency and profitability.

Commenting Nick Noble,  Show Director says: “We were delighted with the success of our first Edinburgh show and are back this October with more exhibitors, features and expert information. There’s an appetite for self-build and renovating in Scotland – our Glasgow show has been running for fourteen years –  and it’s great to add a second Scottish show to our calendar.”

The Show will be packed full of informative features, thousands of dream home ideas, hundreds of plots and renovation opportunities and the latest products and services from over 100 exhibitors. Experts will be on hand to provide free guidance and support to visitors for every project from first home alterations to a full scale self- build, at:

  • 12 seminars each day, where experts will share their experiences and tips to help visitors progress their project and avoid expensive mistakes. Subjects include beginner’s guide to self-build and planning permission, budgeting and financing, inspirational kitchen design ideas and how an interior designer can help transform your home.
  • Ask the Experts – visitors can bring their plans, outline drawings or ideas and speak to one of the experts from Homebuilding & Renovating Magazine, including TV presenter and leading property expert, Michael Holmes and Editor of Homebuilding & Renovating magazine, Jason Orme.
  • Ask the Architects –  no matter the stage or scale of a project, visitors can bring their plans and talk free, one-to-one, to an ASBA architect and save yourself  £100s on consultancy fees.
