My housebuilding project.


I am in the process of building an eco-friendly low-energy house.

Believe you me, it is BST (blood, sweat & tears)! 


The bricks and mortar work has been contracted out but I do a lot of the finishing off work myself in my own time.


Key considerations:

  • orientation of the terrain
  • orientation of the rooms
  • orientation of the roof
  • insulation
  • passive solar gains
  • active solar gains
  • ventilation
  • reduced energy consumption
  • reduced water consumption

I will gradually put photos and text of the major building stages online.


Inside joke! Very funny!


Work in progress ...
