I've had a copy of this since I moved in a neighbour (now friend) brought it round for me. So here's Balnakeil Craft Village a la 1974.

This is part 1 0f 5.

Fortunately it's a lot more habitable now (well all except my daughter's house!) :lol: :lol: :lol:

ah i love seeing things as they were, in my mums loft there was the original newspaper advert for the house when it was first built, hisory is such an interesting part of any home in my eyes
the ever growing luvpie household currently contains, 4 boys, 4 chickens, 2 cats, 2 rabbits, 4 fish, an empty tropical fish tank waiting new arrivals, now are we daft to look at our broody hen thinking, if we got some fertilised eggs........

No I won't use a smiley because I've decided to turn into Boboff, as he's turned all nice all of a sudden. Grumble grumble.

It was Se's thread that reminded me of it :lol: No, there's no-one making them now.

By the way, the first chap that crops up in part 1 moved back to Newcastle (ish) has had a very successful business and was on the last series of Grand Designs building a steel pre-fab house, made by his own company. It was very nice!(But not Ben Law style nice :lol: )
