Back in May I mentioned the local Grand Designs house.
Well, it only recently came to my attention that they were written about with great self-publicity in
23 May 2004 Mail on Sunday article.
Read it and judge yourself. The economics of the venture are much as I had suspected back then. And look what kind of people have the jobs and the salaries to afford this sort of risk.
The house is now semi-occupied but appears to be 80% finished.
