Eugene O’Sullivan from Lismire met up with Award Winning Interior Designer Nina Kati at the Self Build Exhibition in Millstreet in the Green Glens Complex
WITH construction activity continuing to rise at its fastest pace in almost a decade, the Millstreet Self Build Show brought a large attendance to the Green Glens Complex last weekend.
There is a definite pick-up evident in construction and home renovations, and the Millstreet show offered diverse features, from building a new home to improvements in addition to parading new products and technologies to enable and promote sustainable building practices throughout Ireland.
Interior and exterior design caught the eye, as did guidelines on energy saving tips and advice, garden and outdoor living zones with a seminar programme each day of the event.
Clive Corry, chairman of SelfBuild Ireland, spoke of the show offering quality specialists and exhibitors, plenty of advice with live demonstrations on view to meet the demands.
“Following on from the huge success of last year’s event we were committed to building a bigger and better show in 2017 for all the self-builders of Munster”, he said.
“We were delighted to have such a wide and expert range of exhibitors here over the two days of the show, promoting local businesses and showcasing the outstanding talent and innovation which is right on our doorstep.
“Selfbuild Live Cork was the ultimate showcase for people who are building, extending, improving or simply decorating their home. Visitors were presented with an abundance of ideas, inspiration and advice via clinics, theatre talks and exhibitors,” he concluded.
