open out onto a patio, and the utility room sits off from the living space. From there is a Jack and Jill style bathroom, which then leads into the spare room.


Upstairs is a family bathroom and two double


bedrooms. The chalet-style house means they have encroaching ceilings, but David built in wardrobes and drawers, all painted to match, which Tim says utilises these “awkward” spaces. “With dormer-style bedrooms if you’re not careful there are spaces you just can’t use, so by building in cupboards you can get into the corners and use every square inch,” he explains. The family’s existing home is five bedrooms, so they are downsizing substantially. Their eldest two children have moved out leaving Tim, Janet and their 18-year-old son to move into the new home. “We’ve thoroughly used the space and the next stage of our life doesn’t require us to have so many bedrooms,” Tim says. Janet took care of the interior design, including choosing the kitchen and bathroom suites. “We discussed it all, but she wasn’t really involved with the design of the house so I thought it was appropriate to let her take over once the house was built,” explains Tim. “We wanted it clean.” The kitchen is pale grey with white stone worktops, while the rest of the house is painted white with oak flooring and oak doors. “She’s got good taste so it worked out

really well as teamwork!” They picked everything out online or from catalogues on the recommendation of the tradesmen. One extra feature included was an illuminated shower, with lights that change the colour of the water depending on the temperature. “Just for the fun of it!” Tim says. Although Tim admits this is not their dream house, he’s still pleased with the result, which he says is thanks to the people who worked on it. He highlights the heating system as one of his favourite features. “It’s amazing,” he says. He admits their new home will be “fairly compact, and arguably a bit on the small side,” compared with what they’ve been used to. However, having enjoyed the process so much, he’s already thinking about the next build. “It will be next level, an eco house with a full solar roof,” he says. “It will be our dream house, to live in forever, built to a similar specification but bigger. We’re definitely interested in doing it again.” 
