Today we finally got to look at some actual drawings of a house, which is pretty exciting. Following our visit to Tom Gresford’s office a couple of weeks ago, he’s put together a concept that could work for us.
At this early stage it will only be an outline design based on the limited information we have from Graven Hill, so still a lot that could change. We still have the uncertainty of the plots and prices from Graven Hill, but for now we’ve done what we can and just have to be patient.
The drawings that Tom showed us were really exciting – it might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but we’re after a nice clean and simple house, and I think that’s what he has come up with.
The simplicity of the design is important not just from an aesthetic point of view, but also it should help make the design and construction quicker and therefor cheaper (well, here’s hoping anyway!).
