Visit a live Passivhaus build

We're bringing self build to life!

  • Are you an aspiring self builder?
  • Do you wish you had access to a live building site?
  • Do you have questions on how the stages of a self build come together?



If so, Self Build Live is for you! Potton, the UK's leading self build company is building a new Passivhaus show home on their show site in Cambridgeshire.

We are opening up the construction of the build for the public to visit, see and touch. An events programme named 'Self Build Live' is a series of events spanning 2015/16 which will track the live build of Potton's fifth show house.

The events programme, in association with Homebuilding & Renovating, will allow all aspiring self builders access to a live Passivhaus build where you can see and touch the construction as it happens.
