The house design process has taken years. Back in 2015 we had a rough idea of what we wanted our family home to be like. Together, we researched self build projects across the globe. Specifically taking inspiration from city living in Canada and Australia. Graven Hill plots are fairly small in comparison to usual self builds in the UK. This meant that we had to be clever with the space and utilise accordingly.

For us, the visualisations and planning drawings were the easiest part of our build. The brief to ourselves was a “party house” and we hope, when finished the house will be exactly this. As this blog evolves, we will update with snippets of our detail drawings.
