Terry Gibbons was born in a Lincolnshire village, his wife Teresa was born in southern Italy. The couple’s children had all grown up and left home and the couple had been living in Spalding for 10 years and thought that the time was right to 'give it a go'.
The couple who were both in their 60s had in fact already owned, renovated and sold their 4 previous houses in both the Lincolnshire and Leicestershire area. Terry who had an engineering background was working with a friend who is a builder, so the couple were in a prime position for self build.
Terry’s 96 year old father lived in a bungalow in the same village as Terry was born in, he had a large garden that was too much for him to look after so he decided that he would give the 1/3rd of an acre plot to his son.
We found the Potton designer to be the most helpful we had come across, he was always interested in what we wanted, but was ready to advise if he thought we could improve on our initial rough ideas. We have Tom to thank for some of the lovely details we have in our house. His support and advice was first class.
We offer bespoke design and planning servicestailored to you. Please get in touch to discuss your project with one of our knowledgable Self Build Consultants
