It’s on the tele

The house was featured on Grand Designs Trade Secrets on Wednesday 23.01.08 at 22:00, explaining a little about the nature of building on such a constrained site but nothing about the ecological aspects of the design!   Two themes are clearly one too many for a tv show.  Ah well.  http://www.channel4.com/4homes/ontv/grand-designs/trade_secrets/index.html 


We’re in!

January 15, 2008

A bit of a gap since my last update but things have been rather absurdly busy. We’ve moved in with a few weeks to spare before baby number two arrived. He and mum are doing well if not getting much sleep.Here are some photos of it now complete.  I’ll continue to update with how it is to live in along with details of the heat pump and rainwater harvesting in action – there are already a few teething problems (with the house systems – not the baby).                                            Rear living roomStreet ElevationDining room0519luke102.jpg
