The Gibsons found their dream plot in a picturesque Hampshire village after about five years of searching.

It came with existing planning permission and its 1.3 acres are settled amongst countryside views. They decided to self build because of the value for money and first heard about Potton at a self-build exhibition in Swindon.

The Gibsons decided to self manage their build, and work began in October 2017. They used the complete Potton service, including architectural design, planning and Building Regulations, the timber-frame building structure, and the internal/external joinery.

The finished house, which was completed in August 2019, is a real testament to all the Gibsons’ work self managing their build.

The rear elevation of the house is dedicated to the countryside view. On the ground floor, a wraparound patio is accessed by bifold doors, making it the perfect area for outside dining. On the first floor, a generous balcony area has been fitted into a large gable. Dormer windows and an overhanging gable make the design of the Gibsons’ house even more striking.

Great company, would definitely recommend using Potton to get a house built, the factory tour is great to help see the process before purchasing.
