Mobility Space & Public Places
terzo giorno di lavoro a Palazzetto dei Nobili.
tra disegni digitali, schizzi e plastici le idee sono tante e molto interessanti.
da domani si inizia con l’autocostruzione per realizzare le strutture.

development is the belief that you are worth the effort, time and energy needed to develop yourself. "- Denis Waitley"
Hopefully the rest of the glass for the windows will be here this week 🤞🏻 - turns out that a few of the panes are so big that they are having to be manufactured overseas, no one in NI can make them big enough 😬 ... Feels a bit like grand designs 😂
The change made in this garden in less than 3 months, largely by my Dad who officially lives 300+ miles away, is nothing short of a miracle! Swipe 👉🏻 to see just how hard and uneven the ground was as recently as July! The whole area has been turned over, 50 barrow loads of stones removed,(will be used as hardcore elsewhere), whole area levelled (it was slightly sloping before), 13 tonnes of topsoil (that’s over 100 barrow loads) moved from the front garden to the back, whole area rollered and finally grass seed sewn 🌱(with some fancy tape hung up to (hopefully) scare off the birds) 🦅 All of this work now means that once we’re in, likely mid winter, we’ll have a child friendly garden already in place when spring comes. We will be forever grateful for this help. #gardengoals#blankcanvas#grassseed#forevergrateful#readyforspring#davidslawn#springgarden#topsoil#newbuild#selfbuild#selfbuilding#familyof5
Well, this is as good as I got this go around til my lower back up and pooped out on me at 4.5 weeks out. Thanks everyone for your kind words and positive vibes and for those that sent recommendations. It’s nice to see so many people in your corner wishing for you to succeed. That noise always drowns out the nay sayers and the small voice in my head. So THANK YOU ALL. Will work on recovery and healing above all. When the times right, coming back bigger, leaner and dryer.
Pampas grass....acceptable in 2019??? 🌾🤔 #yayornay

We have 6 roof lights in total (7 if you count the roof lantern on the flat roof)... 2 in the big open plan bit, 2 in our bedroom (kind of) and 2 in the hall, which will be one of the darker parts of the house, so we added a couple of roof lights to try and fill the hall with as much light as possible
Been gone for a minute, now I’m back with the jump off 💖
Last week I posted on my story about being in a dark place regarding my #mentalhealth - firstly, thank you so much to all the people that reached out in support of those posts. It was so much appreciated 🥰 secondly, I am in a better place as of today. Not 100% not even 50%, but maybe like 45% so that’s better than nothing ☺️
Today I’m cleaning my room to clear my mind and hopefully help to bring me out of this depressive low. Later this week I’ll be recording videos for #youtube to start off my series on Building in Self Confidence, Positive Body Image and Self Love 💖 I’m also going to be opening up about my depression story and #mentalhealthjourney in an effort to create an open platform for more women of colour to speak about the subject
Currently struggling on a name for the series, so if you have any suggestions... lemme know 💁🏾♀️

Monday morning again folks! 😩
Apologies for going AWOL over the weekend, what were you all up to?? 🙂
I'll tell you something we didn’t consider when buying the site... just how long it would take me to pull the bin out! 🙈
Finally home after an excellent weekend away, painter has been in finishing off bits and pieces including oiling the stairs. Love how the grain in in the oak looks, and the contrast between the light oak stairs and dark oak herringbone hallway is mega 👌🏻 We were lucky enough to attend the wedding of some special friends at @longtonwood - a beautiful woodland setting in Kent with a stunning marquee, perfect weather and great company....the appearance of the wedding alpacas was the icing on the cake!
Gbp60 or Eur90 not really logical @debenhamsire@debenhams, the exchange rate has been circa 1.15 for at least the past year, not 1.5. This is a very off putting practice! . Its like #brexit has already hit.
Regardless I love my new @abigailahern mirror.
The whole vision of our build is based around this big open plan space to the rear of the house. We love to entertain, so that's what this big space will be all about. There is a sliding glass door to go in to the big hole in the wall, which will lead out into the garden - this photo is pre feature trusses, they went in on Friday
We finally got planning for the #ecohouse in March 2019. Persistence paid off. We bought this plot of land at auction as a gamble in 2015, but did research first and found out it was in the village inset, so a higher probability of it being granted. It came with issues believe me, you would not believe the underhand tactics dealt with, and also including designing the house myself.
Even right up to the planning committee, with undeclared bias and I ousted it right to the top, resulting in them not being able to vote and I directly addressed the committee on why it should go ahead. The first time they objected (the ones I ousted) so we had to attend twice. Just shows you can do whatever you want if you put your mind to it.
The house will have #solarpower but will have batteries to store the power .
It will have #rainwaterharvesting and the water will be used to flush toilets and for the washing machine saving approx 20k litres of drinking water per year.
An air source heat pump will heat the house and we will have no requirement for the non renewable gas supply source most houses have.
Every dog has its day as my late Grandad would say. #selfbuld#planningpermisson#cheshire#standupforyourself#saynotobullying#thefatladysings#watchthisspace#grinninglikeacheshirecat#passivehaus#smarthome#buildingthedream#selfbuilding#selfbuildhomes
🌿КАК Я ПРИНЯЛА СЕБЯ 🌿 .
☀️Раньше мне казалось, что любить себя- это очень эгоистично. И даже не подозревала, что не обязательно жертвовать всем, чем только можно, лишь другим было хорошо. ☀️
⚜️Шло время, и вопрос «А почему никто не спрашивает хорошо ли мне?» все глубже проникал в подкорки разума, пока окончательно не добил меня.
☝️Это заставило меня рискнуть и уничтожить идиотские привычки, которые, откровенно говоря, очень мешали жить!👎
🌿Сейчас мне не интересно, что обо мне говорят чужие люди. 🗣Меня не беспокоят проблемы других людей. Отпустив это, гора с плеч упала. И знаете... стало так легко жить.
Вот так- в своё удовольствие.✨
♥️Все, о чем я думаю- это семья, работа и самосовершенствование.
❓Было ли у вас самокопание или может оно продолжается сейчас? Может кто-то со мной не согласен? Ответьте в комментарии, пожалуйста. Правда очень интересно почитать 👇
😌P.S. Любите себя и увидите, как изменится мир.
So here it is. This is is the Automated Home 2.0. We started working on our plans back in January of 2017. Our architects 2020 produced this render of the building and while it's a little idealistic in regards to the setting (and that glass to window frame ratio), it does give an idea of what we are going for. Read the latest blog post for more renders and details…
I think this photo sums up our home well, there aren't many houses where you see a rhea peering over the stone ditch 😂 These three get lots of attention around here, with many passers by slowing or stopping for a look. It's only right that they get a little square on the grid 😁 Jeff is most commonly seen with his wings out around the two girls, Alex could definitely learn a thing or two about romance from him 🙄😂
