Purlins finished

The purlins on Parlaunt schools roundhouse build are now finished ready for the thatch. As you can see its really quite strong, I’m completely happy to sit up on top, then again it does need to take over a tonne of thatch so needs to be.



Work begins at Parlaunt school in Slough

I am delighted to start work on a roundhouse at Parlaunt school in Slough. The build started briskly and I was really pleased to get the walls and door frame up in the first two days. This week I will begin work on the rafters.


If you would like to see how this build should progress take a look at the quick animation on the following page.  Roundhouses 


Sad times and a new impetus

I apologies for my lack of posts recently; but to be frank our lives have been in absolute turmoil.

On the 26th of February this year my 7 year old daughter lost her two year battle with Acute lymphoblastic Lymphoma a relapse to Acute Myeloid Leukaemia and finally after her bone marrow transplant she suffered for 5 months with Adino Virus (cold virus) and possibly HLH (Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis). She eventually died of multiple organ failure after a contracting a type of Pneumonia.

Emily was a bubbly vibrant, dancing, singing, butterfly, rainbow and Nature loving little girl who bravely and stoically faced her gruelling treatment, we are so so proud of her and absolutely devastated by our loss.

Throughout Emily’s treatment I intended to do something to raise money for cancer patients and research. After my sisters successful fund raising efforts at Blenheim Triathlon last year we have decided to take part together on the 02 June. We have a just giving page set up capablebrown4emily.  It would be great if you could donate at least a little to this valuable cause.
