Hazel Tree House is featured on Ben Adam-Smith's House Planning Help podcast

If you are interested in self build, and environmentally conscious self build in particular, we would highly recommend tuning in to Ben Adam-Smith's House Planning Help podcast.

Ben talks with a huge variety of people about their projects and other aspects of sustainable self building. The latest episode features our client Janice Gardiner sharing her insight into her own self build project with husband Colin. The project, Hazel Tree House is designed by us and is a Certified Passive House and also the winner of the 2023 Build It Awards for 'Best Eco-home'.

It is really pleasing to listen to a summary of our client's journey. Janice had this to say about the project:

“I think you should try and enjoy the whole process and I think there's something about working with people that you have a good relationship with. What I found lovely about doing an eco build is that because people are doing what they're interested in, you're all trying to achieve the same thing. There's a bit more of a meaning behind it for all concerned.”

It was also great to hear that the feasibility study we undertook was useful to them:

“I think he was then our guide as to the method of construction and all of the design of the house. He did a really good feasibility study with us in terms of what it is we wanted and how we wanted to live”

A succinct overview of the project can also be found on the show notes.

The podcast and show notes for the episode featuring Josh's self build can be viewed via our previous blog here.
