Sean & Diana
Sean and Diana moved from Leamington Spa to build their new home.
Sean and Diana are both automotive engineers and by applying their methodical minds to their build, they opted for a minimalist, open-plan ‘upside-down’ home with the living and dining space on the first floor. The build will mean the couple will be able to look out over the Graven Hill landscape from their home.
They also demonstrated that planning ahead means they have future proofed their home, allowing them to expand the living areas and increase the number of bedrooms as required.
To save time, the house was accurately built off-site before being brought together and assembled on their plot. However, their build took an unexpected turn when Diana accepted a job in Russia.
The couple both agree that their build has been “challenging and rewarding” but feel that the collective spirit of being part of a group of Graven Hill builders helped get them through.
