Welcome to Meadow View Blog …

Welcome, valued visitor, and thank you for stopping by our blog, which is about our self build project; commencing early 2017. We, very much, look forward to sharing our self build experience with you and welcome you to feel free to comment on any aspect of the build process by submitting a comment after the relevant blog post, and if there’s anything else you’d like to comment on or if there’s something you’d like to see on the website just ‘Contact Us …‘ with your suggestions.

Thank you
