Affordable housing

Cold and Sunny today, Good Friday tomorrow. More photo's today. Top is Charnwood Council's latest attempt at affordable housing provision, but I'm unsure how planning permission was obtained for building on the village green. As you can see solar panels have yet to be fitted to complete the roof and the landscaping has to be completed before anyone can move in. You will note as an environmentally friendly property it does not have a garage but adequate convenient access to public transport. Middle is the latest update on Tardis Two boys toys, showing the central heating thermostat and electric hub complete with trip-switches. Also note the diesel tank gauge currently showing near empty. It will cost in excess of £300 to fill the tank but thereafter should not be necessary for some considerable time (I hope). Both the engine and central heating boiler run very quietly.The third photo shows the lounge with bathroom and bedroom through two open doors. Note windows are fitted, as is the TV, which can be swivelled up, down or in any direction required. A specialist guy will come to fit the sky dish and other bits and pieces once MCC have finished the build. Tardis Two will be moored in the marina for the weekend to free up some space in the workshops and we should be able to start moving our worldly goods aboard next week.
