    Hi there…. any open days planned for 2018? I’d be very interested to visit. I live in an 1860’s terrace in Leamington Spa…. & am really interested to see what you’ve achieved in Birmingham.

    Hiya- will there be an open day in 2017 coming up at all? I am studying at C.A.T. about the things you’re blog/house is about and I’d love to see it!

  3. Will you be having an open day in 2017?
    I am the Hon Sec of the Leicester Art and Design Group. We are a group of local retired professionals – medics, academics, architects and planners – who share an interest in modern architecture and design. I know that the group would be interested in seeing your house.
    Best wishes,
    Rob Purdy
