Rapierstar StarTurn multipurpose wood screws made an appearance recently on the BBC home building TV program 'The House That £100k Built'.

The program which features architectural journalist Kieran Long, and architect Piers Taylor, follows self-builders as they take on the biggest gamble of their lives.

With little or no experience, and putting their life savings on the line, the featured couple in episode 5 set out to realise their dream home with less than £100k to spend.

After living their whole lives in conventional houses with every modern convenience, the couple have bought a plot on an eco-community in West Wales where they can build their own home and live a self-sufficient lifestyle.

When the self-build project falls behind schedule, Piers brings in some skilled building professionals to help move things forward. and StarTurn screws come into their own to help them install the timber flooring in a day.

Whilst the couple intend to build the house with locally sourced materials, when the professionals set to work, they utilise the best product for the job - Rapierstar StarTurn multipurpose wood screws.
