............. for progress on our icf build at Little Cowarne please go to the "blog"

Our Self Build Diary 1993 to 2014, or ......

"the experiences of a couple of left handed,
football crazy, real ale loving, self builders ... "

Introduction to the introduction

Apologies for the stock website but we've never tried web site building before. It seems this is the simplest and cheapest option and it's a means for our "rellies" and friends or indeed anyone with an interest in self build to follow our progress or, more likely, lack of it!

Hopefully, if you are thinking about starting your first "self build" you may learn from the mistakes we've made since 1993, which would be really good because so far ….. we haven't!

Health Warning!

The underlying tone is likely to be one of pessimism, as a result any time spent here is likely to lead to suicidal tendencies, therefore, all the usual disclaimers apply, but do please read on at your own risk ........

Now, we're told that if you want to hold the attention of your intelligent reader then it is not ideal to start your narrative with a direct contradiction, anyway, here goes!

The "real" Introduction

The fact is that having completed one self-build project over 16 years ago and sworn never to do it again ....... you've guessed it ..... in spite of our previous declarations to the contrary we've just bought another building plot and are about to start our second build project.

This will be the resurrection of a plan we first formulated over 20 years ago. Don't you just love it when a plan comes together so quickly!

So, if you aren't already totally bored and still fancy keeping pace with our activities then we suggest the best way to follow our "story" is to track through the pages in chronological order. You can jump about a bit if you want but that way some bits may not make sense - probably won't anyway. In the end you can please yourself and go where you want and don't have a conscience about it, because we'll never know!

We encourage anyone who bothers to skim through our jottings and has the inclination to give us feedback, advice or pointers to please do so .... just one plea, none of the smug "I told you so”, ..... because I'm wise after the event, Kevin McCleod type comments … please!
