Our latest online Green Homes event on Monday proved how useful a Zoom event can be – while needs must.. Nearly 30 people gained inspiration from a virtual tour of Lucy Craig and Gordon Best’s retrofitted 1980s timber frame detached house, and contributed to the lively Q&A session which followed.
You can watch – or rewatch – the tour, plus the first of the series (of Stewart McIlroy’s Edwardian villa) on our YouTube channel here.
