French Country Home by London Architects

You could call this French country home a labor of love for London architects Greg Blee and Lee Halligan – one ultimately spanning almost 30 years. Blee’s parents purchased this countryside home in 1981. Originally built in 1822, this historic home with a mill and three additional structures on the property were in desperate need of some TLC, and with the help of family and friends, the Blees brought this rustic cabin home back to its full glory. In March 2010, Blee Halligan Architects completed the transformation of a 215-sq.-ft. cabin design on the property. This compact cottage was actually made off site, and transported in small pieces via Chunnel. Once on its idyllic site, the prefabricated cabin took shape as an eco friendly cottage, made of local natural materials and complete with solar panels. This passive solar home design really “works” with its natural surroundings. Blee Halligan Architects
