Jim and Faye McGrath self-built their forever home 30 years ago, but as it turned out, they had a second self-build in them. This time around, they chose a kit and moved in only three weeks after the foundations were done.
How did the project get started?
We had self-built our 2,700 sqft family home in 1988. It was a five bedroom house, which served us really well up to the point when the children had grown and left. The house was just too big for us. Fortunately this coincided with news that our daughter, along with her husband and two children, were moving back home from Canada after 13 years being away.
