Welcome to the Property & Building Directory from CannySites.com – a business proudly based in Gateshead, UK, whose raison d’être is about creating web directories and content that people want to use, click through, and share.

The Property & Building Directory has its origins in Sapling.info, a built environment subject gateway that we created way back in 1999 when our founder, Graham Soult, was studying architecture at university. Today, with Graham’s focus now firmly on retail, we have finally said goodbye to Sapling.info and hello to the Property & Building Directory – creating a consumer-focused site about property and home improvement, designed along similar lines to our existing Directories for home interiors, gardening, fashion and holidays.

So, whether you’re a PBD newbie or someone redirected from Sapling.info, welcome! Our aim is to be your source for property, home improvement and DIY-related online stores and services in the UK. From familiar high-street names to online specialists, you’ll find them all here, alongside lots of useful Hints and Tips. You can also check out the latest updates on our Twitter account and Facebook page.

If you’re a business related to property, home improvement or building, or a web or marketing agency working on behalf of one, our aim – by constructing a site lovingly designed for humans – is to attract you to advertise with us, helping you showcase your products and services and reach new customers. So drop us a line, and let’s have a chat!
