Tucked away in a village in Staffordshire is an award-winning timber-clad that anyone would be proud to call home.

What you can’t tell from the contemporary exterior is the determination, passion and drive that led local 28-year-old Patsy Parr to take on this self build project and see it through many months of planning. That's not to mention that this home was built during a pandemic lockdown, in less than six months, and for just £191,000.
