Jack & Hannah

Getting on the property ladder at Graven Hill

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

Not only did Jack design the house himself, he also built it himself. The cleverly chosen materials and processes meant that Jack could do it himself – and as a resourceful scavenger, he was able to source materials that would otherwise have ended up in landfill.  Ultimately, this saved them a fortune on labour and generated immediate equity in their house.

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