The ground works for the site started in January 2015. For the groundworks we employed a local building firm from Ashburton, called Brayshaw Developments Limited. We have contracted them to build the access road to the houses, the site drainage and the 6 foundations for the houses.
In order to meet our planning conditions and before we could begin construction, Broadhempston CLT had to provide onsite welfare for the self-builders. So as usual we wanted to do this as cheaply as possible. So instead of paying for a Porter Loo during the construction period we decided to make a compost toilet instead.
