"My initial brief described a desire to build a warm, simple home, incorporating maximum energy efficiency and within a limited budget. Mark felt confident we could achieve all of these goals.

By incorporating many eco-friendly principles, we have created a very special house, with the added bonus of incredibly low everyday running costs. Who could ask for more?"- Heidi Cooke
