Build cost £225,000 Size 300m² Lo­ca­tion Corn­wall Build time 27 months Si­mon and Deb­bie Palmer built a con­tem­po­rary fam­ily home, de­spite a fire after 12 months on site — caus­ing the works to go back to foot­ings stage. The fin­ished prop­erty has been clad in white ren­der and cedar, and small port­holes in the front door are tes­ta­ment to the prop­erty’s coastal lo­ca­tion.

Build cost £263,000 Size 84m2 Lo­ca­tion Corn­wall Build Time Four months Andy and natasha Righe­lato have re­placed a run-down 1960s bun­ga­low on an el­e­vated plot above a Cor­nish beach with a chalet-style re­treat — mak­ing it the per­fect fam­ily hol­i­day home on the coast. The tim­ber-clad prop­erty ben­e­fits from an up­side-down liv­ing ar­range­ment, with vaulted 4.5m-high ceil­ings in the open plan kitchen/din­ing/liv­ing area, and full-height glaz­ing of­fer­ing views of the beach be­low.

Build cost £1mil­lion Size 350m2 Lo­ca­tion Corn­wall Build time 11 months Colin Price and Sharon Toye de­mol­ished their 1960s sea­side home to cre­ate a con­tem­po­rary prop­erty which makes the most of the site’s dra­matic coastal views through large ex­panses of glass. Clad in a sim­ple pal­ette of white ren­der and topped with a slate roof, the house has been built in block­work. It ap­pears sin­gle storey from the more pri­vate front el­e­va­tion, with the slop­ing site al­low­ing for the home’s two-storey na­ture to be re­vealed at the rear.
