repairing a phone boxsketchWP_20160513_18_39_58_ProSome time ago I was thinking about what small corner of our town of Silsden might be improved by a bit of ‘greening up’. I came across this corner at the junction of three streets which looked like good a candidate, having lots of tarmac but no plants. What it did have however was an old red phone box and I realised that this must be the last red phone box in the town.Continue Reading..

See how things are progressing with the green build house. Some solid work this summer has seen the ground slab installed, retaining walls constructed, lower level walls built, waterproof tanking done, drainage underway and the ‘beam and block’ upper floor installed. Some backfilling will be done soon which will show the partly ‘sunken’ nature of the building.

The walls are constructed from insulated concrete formwork (IFC) which gives a vary good level of insulation and which has also helped to form the retaining structure.

The waterproof tanking is stuck to the outside of the IFC and protected with a water draining membrane.

This project will provide an energy saving home on a pocket sized site. This existing garage will be demolished and replaced with a two bedroomed house. It will include external walls formed using insulated formwork, electricity generating roof panels, air source heat pump for heating and triple glazing. The house will be no bigger visbly than the existing building but will gain space by digging into the ground slope. What about this for a view!

No one can doubt the success of the Tour in Yorkshire. It showed a real outburst of creativity throughout the County. The race and the entourage were spectacular of course, but afterwards there was a lovely hour or two when we had no cars, and peaple could reclaim the road in our local town. What a pleasure!
