Welcome to Bobbin House Selfbuild

We moved in during November 2011! We have now been in over a year and despite doing a lot of work there still things to finish.

Planning Approval was granted on 10 February 2009, almost eight months after initially submitting our planning application and one year to the day since we completed the purchase of the plot.

On 2 May 2009 we received confirmation of the house name. We had requested it to be Bobbin House. Bobbin is the maiden name of Hilary's Mother. Hilary's Grandfather was born in Barmer (near Syderstone), Norfolk so it acts as a link both to family and Norfolk.

The planning reference at North Norfolk District Council is PLA/20080946.

The Landranger reference for the site is TG031441 which should be 52° 57'.18N, 01° 01'.18E. This is grid reference 603018,344037.
