living the dream

What inspired you to self build? Realising that we could buy the right plot and build just for us. A ‘try before you buy’ weekend in Oakwrights’ show home clinched it. How easy was it to build? The building was done by Oakwrights. The scarier bits were the transitions, such as making sure the groundwork was fit to receive the basement.

escape to the country

Frances and Andrew Morton-Jenkins are no strangers to doing up listed buildings. ‘This is our fourth,’ says Andrew. ‘But I wish we didn’t always fall in love with historical buildings. They always turn out to cost twice as much and take twice as long to renovate. We apparently can’t help ourselves. We are suckers for punishment.’ The couple first came across their listed Georgian farmhouse when they chose to book in as guests – it was being run as a bed and breakfast. ‘We’d decided we wanted to give our daughter, Tamar, then six, a country upbringing, so we’d come to Somerset on a house-hunting weekend to look for a new home, and promptly fell head over heels in love with this house. We were attracted by its position surrounded by…
