Christine Anderson has built a barn-style home on her former smallholding, building in future-proofing, which will enable her to remain there as she grows older.
Grieving for a spouse might sound like a challenging time to begin a self build project, but for Christine Anderson it proved exactly the distraction she needed. Sitting in the heart of the Northampton smallholding they owned for 15 years, the Old Forge was a small, ugly residential let next door to the home Christine shared with her husband Chas and their grown-up son Charles.
As she walked around the fields of the 21-acre site she knew she didn’t want to leave her home and start afresh somewhere else.
There were plenty of memorable moments during that time. It was so strange seeing the bungalow there one morning and the site being completely clear just days later. And then seeing the timber frame erected in just a few more days, it was phenomenal.
