Maybe you could give us a bit of detail about the house you've designed and building for yourself?

We are about to start building a 3 bedroom house on an ''architects site'' (difficult sloping site any sane person would think twice about) that we had previously subdivided after turning the existing house 90 degrees to allow access! As part of the design and build process we are using SIP (structurally insulated panels) and prefinished cladding materials to decrease the building time.
