In the beginning...

How did it all begin? How did we come to be building a new home?

It all started when we returned home from a camping trip at Easter 2010.

 "Wouldn't it be good if we had a drive-thru garage and we could open out the camper-trailer to dry before putting it away in the garage?". (Dave)

Well, that was it! That was all I (Jo) needed to start thinking about a new house. We had been living in our big Clarendon box for 10 years, and while it was a solid well built house, it was really lacking in good design. It had only one north facing window in the whole house! It had a huge void, was extremely noisy, and very expensive to heat and cool. While the house had served us well, I was keen to build again and try and fix some of the mistakes we made the first time.
