Grand Designs often follows incredibly interesting building projects. A story following a house built in the Kent countryside in 2008 was no exception. The architect and owner constructed an experimental, unreinforced, terracotta arched building supporting an earth roof with tiles manufactured from clay onsite. The building was risky but has proved a great success and extremely energy efficient, even providing an income for the owners!
Unfortunately two years later during Kevin's revisit, efflorescence has left it's mark:
Kevins face says it.....should have used Efflock!
....Of course Efflock didn't even exist at the time this house was built, but perhaps they can use it next time. For further information about this remarkable house and the architect, please click here.
