As you may already know self build (well house building of all sorts) is in the news at the moment with the Government trying to increase the number of houses being built, to shape the type of houses we build, to 'ease' and simplify the planning process and generally give Local Parish Councils more say.
If you are interested in self building (a Border Oak house of course) you may like to fill in the quick survey on the Homebuilding & Renovating website http://www.homebuilding.co.uk/govtsurvey
And on another note I have finally got the dates for the BBC1 'To Build or Not to Build' TV series. It starts on the 5th Sept at 11am on BBC (and on iPlayer thereafter) and the Border Oak houses feature on the 5th, 9th, 16th and the 20th.
This beautiful home features in the first episode on 5th September and also in Ideal Home magazine ( I think it is out at the end of September.......I will let you know when I find out.)
