Mini home Builder Challenge Winners Announced!

ProAktive Selfbuild, the people who developed the UK’s first self build insurance policy in 1984, have announced winners of the first Mini Home Builder Challenge.

The contest, launched in October 2016, invited children (under the age of 11) to build or design their dream home.

ProAktive received entries from children of all ages, ranging from 7 months, to 11 years old.

Although all the entries were fantastic, there could only be one winner, in each of the three age categories.

Under 5 category winner – Matilda. Lots of children dream of living in a storybook castle. This fantastic creation, complete with a drawbridge, looks simply magical.

6 – 8 years old category winner – Alfie. The attention to detail on this grand design would make Kevin MacLeod proud. Alfie has even included a football pitch, perfect for an impromptu game of five a side.

9 – 11 years old category, and overall Mini home Builder Challenge winner – Monica.

A tremendous amount of time must have been dedicated to this complex build. A range of different materials were used. Monica could be an architect of the future!
