Following the change in Government policy we decided that a site trip was finally possible and even better it would be in the sunshine this time. The local cows had done a splendid job of keeping the grass down and apart from the mild / epic feeling of panic at the amount of work ahead, it was amazing to wander round what will eventually become our new home.
Ran past the plot at the weekend and although nice and sunny it was windy, really windy. With the prevailing weather coming from the south-west and not a lot between our hill-top site and Cuba, a slight exaggeration but not by much, we should have some fun to come in the winter months.
A sturdy front door has been added to the design brief.
Plot hunting around these parts is a bit of a challenge even more so when you’re trying to find somewhere to build an eco-friendly passivhaus. The site must have a southerly aspect for solar heating, not be over-shadowed by trees and obviously not be built on a plague pit or other supernatural hazard. Finding something that ticks those boxes AND is available for the right price has taken some effort. Well actually, it’s probably just luck as I’m not sure our previous efforts actually got us anywhere.
