Also included with the wooden-clad and white painted house is a large heated infinity pool, which the Coopers built after their home was featured on television, a pizza oven and a hot tub. 

The lavish pre-fabricated house took the Coopers less than four days to build, installing the two floors in two days and astonishingly slotting on the roof by day three.

They opted for a closed panel system – which means that as much of the build as possible could be done in a factory in Bavaria. 

The doors, windows and every fitting was chosen beforehand and even the exterior walls were constructed at the factory.
