Contemporary Self Build in Dorset

First-time self-builders Dave and Barbara Jenkins found a bungalow ripe for replacing. The couple wanted to plan ahead for their retirement. Sean, working with Potton, designed them a totally bespoke new home which would cater for their needs into old age. Sean was shortlisted for ‘Best Self-Build Designer’ in the 2017 Build It Awards for this home.


The Jenkins

The house isn’t anything like the surrounding properties, but the planners didn’t have a problem with that and we didn’t have to make any changes. That was all down to Sean Adams knowing what the planners would accept, which was a great benefit. When we tell people we have moved to the area and start to say where the property is everyone responds “in the white house, that is a beautiful house, it looks lovely”. We endorse their views without hesitation it is marvellous, thank you Sean.’
