Before they start a family, couples are often drawn to building their own home, which happened to be the case of Jason and Nicola O’Donnell.
Nicola and I are both from the local area, have jobs here, and knew we wanted to stay put to start a family,” says Jason. “We were lucky to have a fabulous site with amazing views. My parents had the foresight to buy the land next to their house when it came up for sale.”
“We started our journey buying magazines, watching various house programmes, and using social media to create mood boards and follow house accounts. Visiting the Selfbuild shows was a great help too,” says Nicola.
