Micah Jones’ ‘four bedroom supershed’ creation has been his dream since he was handed his first hammer and saw as an eight-year-old. But the 29-year-old said his principal motivation in building his own house so early in his career was to create a larger home for his growing family.

Micah and his wife Elaine spotted the site just outside Ballygowan where they built their home on the Property News website back in 2014. They started the build in 2016. To add to the challenge, the couple’s third child was born in June, just as they were moving in.

Their remarkable story of transforming a dilapidated old agricultural building was featured on the Channel 4 series Grand Designs.
