The Reetham Family self build story

A beautiful, flexible self build home

Family home uses Gyproc Habito and ThistlePro Magnetic plaster

When the Reetham family were given the opportunity to build their own home on family-land, they knew that their home needed to stand the test of time and withstand the rigours of family life.  Finding their ideal build partner in Potton, they were immediately drawn to a range of products from British Gypsum that would ensure their house could withstand the kicks, the knocks and decades of DIY.

Sharron Reetham loves a project, so when they were given the opportunity to build their own home, Sharron immediately grasped the nettle and took on a full time planning role.  Determined to find the ultimate partner to deliver their dream home, Sharron also kept one eye firmly on future-proofing the property.  Sharron explains: “we love Potton, we’d worked with them before so we knew it would be a successful partnership, but we were really drawn to the added-value products from British Gypsum.   Every room in our home needs to be flexible, adaptable and of course cope with many and varied modifications over the years.  Our daughters are still very young so we wanted to ensure that their bedrooms could be fun, creative spaces too.”

Sharron integrated Gyproc Habito super-strength plasterboard throughout their home allowing Sharron to hang heavy objects, up to 15kg off one screw, without the need for wall plugs or specialist fittings.  With a passion for art, every wall surface is now completely adaptable allowing Sharron and her family to continue their art collection without fear of heavy pieces falling to the floor.  Gyproc Habito super-strength plasterboard has also been used on the ceilings enabling the Reethams to hang their 10ft cinema screen with confidence.
