Jack, a quantity surveyor, and Hannah, a primary school teacher, have moved to Bicester to live with Jack’s mum to save money whilst they build. Having been priced out of buying in their area, self-build is the only way the couple can afford to get on the housing ladder.
Not only has Jack designed the house himself, he plans to build it himself. They’ve cleverly chosen materials and processes that Jack can do himself – and as a resourceful scavenger, he’s able to source materials that would otherwise end up in landfill.
It’s hard work, but ultimately will save them a fortune on labour. However, it will also create a huge demand on Jack’s time and energy. What could possibly go wrong?
