Self Build Live: Building a Passivhaus

Forming a complete step-by-step guide to building a home, we follow leading package company Potton as they start work on a brand new Passivhaus home

Potton Passivhaus

In a UK industry first, self build specialist Potton is giving aspiring self builders an opportunity to watch, stage-by-stage, the construction of its fifth and most contemporary showhome.

Self Build Live is a series of events – held at Potton’s Self Build Show Centre in St Neots, Cambridgeshire – designed to offer potential self builders an ‘access all areas’ insight into the construction of a fully certified Passivhaus. Visitors can learn first-hand how to build their own home — the highlights of which are showcased in the articles below.

Potton, together with its build partners, will host 16 Self Build Live events at key stages of the build — from laying the slab, installing insulation and skimming the walls to fitting the bathrooms, interior design and decoration. Each event will provide essential self build information and an unprecedented insight into building a Potton home.
