At a meeting one night I re drew up some ideas based on what everyone else wanted from the building, jamming designs around a table; we wanted it round like a crannog or hut circle, we wanted big windows for lots of light, we wanted a shelter from the rain, and indoor and outdoor space. I hastily drew this up that night to show to the director and presenter Charlie the next morning early.
The last week of August was the build week. The whole structure was to be built in only five days! It was not without its challenges!
The TV programme was first aired on 12th December 2011 on SKY1
- It has recieved widespread coverage in the press and on BBC online.
Members of the community gathered at the Carron Restaurant to view the programme together. It has been an amazing project, lots of people have worked incredibly hard on it. It will be available from spring 2012 to hire out for classes, events, meetings, photoshoots etc. All funds will go towards the Kirkton Community Woodlands buy out.
