‘A modern-day Brady Bunch making green mainstream’

 

Welcome!

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

Think The Brady Bunch meets Grand Designswith a green twist.

If we can do this – anyone can!

For day-to-day ramblings & house pics head over to insta.

Blend it your way,
