The Naked House

Bring your clients along to show them this innovative exhibit! A section of a real house is built in the exhibition hall, so that the building materials can be observed as they would be in a real build project. This is a rare opportunity to see how a new build home could look at ‘first fix’ and also to see how various building products work together. This year the feature will show how Build It built their very own house, providing an unrivalled view into what it takes to build a house.

The Naked House presents various building products, including Insulated Concrete Formwork (ICF), exterior finishes, sustainable & renewable energy, floor joists and roof trusses.
