We now have a fabulous new eco house! After almost four years of planning and preparation, it works out you can actually build an eco house in one minute. Would you believe it? This timelapse film shows the rapid construction of Sky House Sussex in under five breath-taking days. The process was every bit as exciting as you’d expect (particularly if you are an avid Grand Designs viewer like us) and thankfully without any major glitches. Even high winds and a snapped cable on the crane were not enough to deter the Baufritz team who worked smoothly and skilfully with the Brits operating the crane from TerraNova.

We were delighted to welcome the Mayor of Lewes, Councillor Ruth O’Keeffe on site on the first day of construction who commented, “It was very interesting to learn about all the ecological aspects of the construction and amazing to see the sections of the building arriving and being put in place whole using the giant crane”.
