Jack & Hannah

Getting on the property ladder at Graven Hill

First time buyers Jack and Hannah have been priced out of buying a house in their area – self-build is the only way the couple can afford to get on the housing ladder and the choice of plots available on Graven Hill made this possible.

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.  Ultimately, this will save them a fortune on labour and generate immediate equity in their house.

Jack embraces the Graven Hill community spirit and works closely with his neighbours to achieve his dream house.
