BIG IDEA #1

BUILD ON AN EX­IST­ING SITE

House and Leisure Before and After - - RENOVATION #6 -

Ren­o­vat­ing a his­toric house will re­ward you with a spa­cious home that’s cool in sum­mer and warm in win­ter. Or con­sider build­ing on a his­toric site: while it’s tempt­ing to sit­u­ate a new house on a farm’s kop­pie to max­imise the view, the wind and sun will be in­tense. ‘The old peo­ple built prac­ti­cally; they worked with the sun and made sure there was wa­ter nearby. Our house is fed from a spring at Mod­der­riv­ier,’ says Kevin.
