ebuild is sad to announce its closure - it has become too time and resource intensive to develop, manage and maintain.

This entry will look into some of the options we considered for construction methods, materials and technologies for our new house and follows on quite hurriedly from my last ramblings that gave a brief insight into the house design.

This installment will chart our first adventures into the world of planning, a ride that was to prove both turbulent...
