We visited the show on the weekend and it feels like one of the strongest in years.  Many thanks to Piers Gough and Alan Stanton for putting it together.

The show is on until the 15th of August - go and see it if you can!

Birds Portchmouth Russum's design for the house at 6 Wood Lane is under construction.  The masonry lower half of the house is almost complete, and the pre-fabricated timber upper sections were recently craned into place, creating the fabulous space visible in the photo above.
