Jez Lavers, who built a five-bedroomed, three-storey, eco friendly home for his family on the site of a demolished cottage in Derriford, has won £5,000 from the Norwich and Peterborough Building Society Eco Self-Build competition.
Jez, a senior architect with Plymouth-based The Architect’s Design Group told the Plymouth Herald: “In these days of financial instability, the additional costs of ‘eco-friendliness’ and sustainable features can often fall victim to budget cuts. But our house, built on a tight budget, shows that good, simple, well-chosen eco measures are a wise financial investment.”
