We have now started the construction of this large house. As you can see from this model, it is a new build house in open countryside and getting planning permission was quite complicated.

 

The building work is being very ably managed by Andrew Wooler and Ian Sunderland of RN Wooler from Keighley who have started by digging a very big hole!
