We’ve found a plot! – Paul & Blanka
Frustrated by the lack of suitable plots and high rental prices Paul & Blanka take advantage of the opportunities at Graven Hill
They decide to take matters into their own hands and create a
cost-effective, eco-friendly home.
They build their house with hempcrete but this comes with challenges, namely that the labour costs are more than they imagined. This requires a significant amount of tolerance and patience from his family. However, the Graven Hill community spirit comes to the fore with neighbours helping Paul & Blanka – and in return he helps them.
As Paul says, “it’s a cosy, friendly, positive community.”
