The Real Refurbs exhibition is currently showing as part of the the Sustainable Building Techiques area of Grand Designs Live 2012.
Real Refurbs has organised this section of the show on behalf of LILI (Low Impact Living Initiative), by invitation of the Grand Designs team. Our area brings together over 10 different practising, experienced UK natural builders. This will be our third showing at the event, and each time we’ve all had fantastically positive feedback so if you’d like to know more about any of the following, please come along & find us all:
low impact living – a large selection of LILI’s free 170 factsheets on display
hempcrete building – new build, restoration and retrofit insulation
