Okay- I am just seeing if this works, as I am new to google blogging! I have really enjoyed reading people's posts. I cant stop thinking about this Project, what it would mean and how exciting it would be to see something become reality. I keep thinking 'could this actually happen??' and then remind myself 'why, not, if people are on board and care enough about it then it can'. I am meeting the other family next week, where I will bring up this concept with them. Best to do it face to face then over the phone I think.
Martin- I know we don't know each other very well (yet), but am loving the idea of building our own space. Whenever Jon and I watch Grand Designs- we think 'if only', but if a group of us was doing it together it suddenly becomes more affordable and makes sense. When people are committed to exploring the idea maybe we could visit a community (as i have chatted about with tim and kate) and perhaps someone who built their own 'grand design' to gain an understanding of the processes involved.
thanks, miche x
