Week 36 – Site Progress!

We have solar panels! And just in time before the scaffolding comes down next week….

Double height hallway…Good decision!

Many moons ago…well it feels like that now…we made the decision to have a partial glass ceiling in the hallway, so that when walking into the house, the rooflight could be seen and really let the light in. Plus who doesn’t love a quirky glass ceiling! It was always going to be a compromise though,Continue reading “Double height hallway…Good decision!”

Week 26 and 27 – Site Progress!
