Designs on Kew - Follow the Self-Building Project

In a project Kevin McCloud would have been happy to get his hands on, Kew House is a modern infill house in London which landowners Jo and Tim Lucas have been working to develop since September 2010. The construction of the self-building project which is now in its final stages can be followed online using the detailed timeline. A fantastic amount of description and photographs are given at all stages from locating the land in Kew, to the appointment of Piercy&Co as the project's architects, through to the pre-application process, planning, design and construction of the house. The highs and lows of the project are documented in a casual and personal tone which manages to belie the impressive size and ambition of this inspirational under-taking. http://kewhouse.info/
