‘A modern-day Brady Bunch making green building mainstream’

 

Welcome!

So glad you are here to witness our overly ambitious attempt to design & build sustainable, affordable, beautiful homes whilst juggling four kids, three joint-custody arrangements and two jobs.

Think The Brady Bunch meets Grand Designswith a green twist.

What could possibly go wrong?!

If you are looking for more info on the sale of ‘Ethelbrook’ head here, or for day-to-day ramblings & house pics head over to insta.

Blend it your way,
