John is another one of our keen home builders.  I asked him to send in a few words...

"I saw an ad for teardrop plans in a copy of Fine Homebuilding magazine and thought I wouldn't mind building one of those.

I sent away for a template modified it to a 2.7 metre length and after sourcing materials, I think I took about 9 months off and on building it.

I had an annexe custom made for the kitchen end and we have had a few trips. We keep saying we must do more."

...Ok, so John isn't really a chatty man... he is a doer... and what a teardrop!...
