Bert Galbraith, of Galbraith Construction, said the free event was organised to help house builders save both time and money while achieving the best results.

“There’s been a rise in the number of people planning to build new homes, renovate old ones and add extensions to existing properties and we want to help them start off on strong footing with the right advice.

“Most importantly #Build16 will help house builders save on build costs and avoid unnecessary delays in their build process.

“#Build16 promises to be the most important event anyone building a house in Donegal will attend this year.”

Fidelma Kelly, from event sponsor EBS Letterkenny, said: “We are delighted to sponsor this event as building a home can be a daunting prospect.

“At EBS we know how much time and energy goes into building your own home and we want to support you every step of the way.”
