Potton self builders Eric and Jean Sawyer are celebrating after their three bedroomed, eco-efficient home in Oxfordshire won Best Self Build under £250K at the recent Build It Awards.

Celebrating all aspects of self build and renovation, the award recognised the Sawyer’s contemporary barn style home for delivering a high quality home that makes the best use of the budget available.

Commenting on the award, Marketing Manager, Potton, Fae Perkins said: “We are delighted for Eric and Jean and thrilled that their Potton home has been recognised as a build that represents outstanding value for money.”

“Potton works hard to communicate that self build is not just for the wealthy few but is achievable to all, whatever the budget. The Sawyer’s home clearly demonstrates that an affordable home can be built without compromise and with stunning results.”

Held at London Bankside and hosted by comedian Marcus Brigstocke, the annual Build It Awards is one of the highlights of the self and custom build calendar and is a celebration of excellence within the sector.

Potton were also finalists in several other categories including; Best Timber Frame Home, Best Self Build, Best Custom Build Project and Best Self Build Designer.

Kingspan Timber Solutions, Potton’s sister company also collected the prestigious award for ‘Innovation in Insulation’ for the Kingspan Ultima Build System.

The Winners

Potton customers Eric and Jean Sawyer joined the Potton table at the awards ceremony, which was held at London Bankside and hosted by comedian Marcus Brigstocke.

Jean and Eric had a modest plot and built a beautiful Potton barn which they now love living in.

Potton’s Marketing Manager Fae Perkins said "This is an important award for Potton with much of the market associating the brand with far larger self-build projects. This accolade is proof that Potton really do design and build homes to any scale, style and budget."
