Self Build Heroes

Self Build Heroes


Among the notable individuals here at Self Build Heroes are ex-military tradespeople who are experienced in timber frame and Insulated Concrete Framework (ICF) Constructions.

Founded by Matthew Burrows, the team not only share a range of construction trade skills such as: scaffolding, roofing, second fix joinery but also 50 years of service and 16 operational deployments. Which means if you’re recently traumatised by the thought of your own house building project or simply tired of being let down by contractors then hiring a team of resilient ex-forces could be the best solution for you to achieve your dream home.

"Self Build Heroes is a team of experienced home builders that are here to provide unquestionable reliability to any self-builder's project. Our wider mission is also to support veterans up-skill in a new industry when they leave the Armed Forces through on-site mentoring and classroom based learning should they so wish" says Matthew .


We jumped at the opportunity to support Self Build Heroes on their latest live project by providing on-site install training with our Specification Manager, Mark Nugent. 

"The choice of fermacell® drylining for this project and others we have done is based on it's ease of use for the self-builder, they can join in and see progress if they wish, but also for the additional acoustic, structural and functional benefits the system has for individual home owners. It's great to be working with Mark to update our knowledge base and try new application techniques that can speed up the installation process in the future." - Matthew Burrows, founder of Self Build Heroes.
