In many ways, we have created our property in reverse from the way most would – building the barn, garden, chicken coop, orchard, vineyard and landscape before ever dreaming of erecting the first wall of a house. However, with that said , we both have begun to wish for a comfortable place to stay a night or two at the farm to begin to enjoy the fruits of our labor a bit more often.
Sean designed and built a shed to mimic an old world chicken coop – and we fell in love with the look as soon as we saw it. Sean did an amazing job of documenting his building process – and that will help us greatly as we modify it to fit our design. The cabin itself will have a small footprint, measuring just 12 x 18′ with a double slanted roof design. It will be tucked away in the back northwest corner of the property – overlooking the barns and the small vineyard and orchard that has begun to fill the hillside.
The exterior will be clad in the identical board and batten siding and recycled corrugated metal that we have used on the barn and coop.
The cabin will be powered with solar panels, a rain water collection system for all non-drinking water needs, a compostable toilet, shower, and a small kitchen. In any case – we hope that by late next spring we can complete the cabin project and begin staying a night or two at the place that has become such a big part of our life – and hopefully, a long part of our future! While researching the geology of the area to understand the likely ground conditions a few metres down and to check whether there were any local sandstone deposits that might have been the source of the building stone on the site I came across a report from the British Geological Survey on the gypsum deposits in the Chellaston and Aston-on-Trent districts.

The plot had an electricity supply to the old farmhouse, before that was demolished, so rather than needing a complete new supply it just needed some modifications to the previous electrical installation.
There’s a set of 11kV three-phase overhead lines roughly 200m from the plot and the supply comes from those via a pole-mounted transformer and overhead cables. Pole-Mounted Transformer, supplying 230 volt single-phase from 11,000 volt three-phase lines. You see a lot of roadside cabinets containing electrical equipment next to mobile phone masts and the like. In preparation for the supply being re-connected I had to prepare a concrete pad for the GRP enclosure to sit on, complete with ducted cable runs up through the concrete for the incoming and outgoing cables (in regulation 38mm electrical cable duct made of black polythene).
Prepared concrete pad with embedded electrical cable ducts ready for installation of GRP cabinet. On connection day the Western Power Distribution team turned up with some pretty impressive kit to auger a nice deep hole for the new pole and to lift it into position.

The supply cable runs down the new pole and underground for about 3 metres before entering the bottom of the cabinet, so it all looks rather neat. Installed GRP enclosure on concrete pad connected to new pole with incoming overhead single-phase supply.
I had already arranged for my electricity supplier to install a meter on 2013-12-20, and that went ahead as planned.

Just a quick message to ask you to check the Southern Electrical part of your electrical installation.
Also you will note that SSE have placed a disclaimer label on the bottom of the switch for loads connected to it. When the site’s previous electricity supply was reconnected in December 2013 for a very reasonable fee (as covered in some detail in this post) the agreement with Western Power Distribution (WPD), the local DNO, was that I would contact them again when the power supply requirements for the new house were better understood. Install a new underground cable feeding the House, connecting to the GRP cabinet via the duct used for the temporary cable to the socket by the hedge on the southern boundary.
In due course, install another new underground cable feeding the Outbuildings, connecting back to the GRP cabinet via the duct used for the temporary cable to the caravan and site huts. Make provision for the connection of a standby generator at the GRP cabinet, to provide a temporary supply in the event of an extended outage (e.g. Had I wanted to move the meter then WPD would have had to take care of that, most likely re-cabling from the top of the supply pole to the new meter location, but since the meter is staying where it is there’s no need for any re-cabling for that purpose. Most, if not all, of the re-cabling work will affect the fields owned by Thulston Fields Farm rather than my own property, so their consent is also required before the work can go ahead (plus a decision on whether to replace the poles and the overhead cables or whether to bury everything underground).
The following example design drawings are of a proposed self build detached 7 bedroom dwelling set on the site of a delapidated farm house which was beyond economical refurbishment in the rural village of Stoke Goldington, Buckinghamshire.

It’s a process that has worked well for us, allowing us to concentrate efforts on completing the entire farm before being consumed by the process of building our final home at the top of the hill in a few years.

The cables connecting to the old farmhouse were removed at the time it was demolished but the rest of the supply infrastructure was left pretty much intact. The best option seemed to be to put the meter and other switchgear in a standalone cabinet a few meters from the southern boundary and to run armoured cables underground from there.
They suggested installing the new pole a little further to the east, which moved it further out of sight of the house, and made things slightly more convenient for the future connection to the outbuildings, so that was all agreed and they scheduled an installation date of 2013-12-18.
It was a bit fiddly getting the ducts to stay where I wanted them while the concrete was setting but it all turned out fairly well. Now everything is ready for me to have my own electrician install some sort of consumer unit to connect to the cables feeding out to the caravan and builders’ site hut. The original plan was for that to be temporary and for the electricity meter to move into the Outbuildings with an onward feed to the House, but since the construction of the Outbuildings is being deferred the GRP cabinet will need to stay for a while and most likely for the long term.
However, there is a need for some re-cabling to cater for my preferred model of Ground Source Heat Pump, as noted in the Week 4, Day 5 post.
The design makes maxmum use of the available building plot to form a traditionally designed home with views over the country side and Tyringham Hall in the distance.
They move south along ice-fee corridors into the North American continent to what is now California.
With him are two Franciscan padres, Junipero Serra and Juan Crespi, who record the expedition and found the first mission. Of the missions’ eight million acres originally designated as the property of converted Native Americans, 500 land grants are created for influential families.
Though the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo formally ends the war, it becomes an issue of contention when existing Californio rights are not honored as promised, and the Treaty is breached. The treaty takes place at the house of Don Feliz (Campo de Cahuenga) near the Cahuenga Pass.
His adobe house eventually becomes state historical monument: Los Encinos State Historical Park. This pamphlet extolls the benefits of living in Southern California in order to be healed of many diseases like tuberculosis.


Los Angeles Farm and Milling Company, the successor to the Homestead Association, promotes wheat and flour-milling industry. Going back to Native American terms, the word Cahuenga reflects the Native American origins of the San Fernando Valley. Phyllis O’Kray from the crash of a jet plane, Valley residents picket Lockheed Aircraft Corporation in Van Nuys to abolish the use of the San Fernando Valley for jet flying. This will be the third institution of higher education founded in the Valley; in 1947 Pierce College is founded and in 1949 Valley College opens. Murrow televises the Sodium Reactor Experiment from the Santa Susana Research Facility on his program as it powered Moorpark. Although safety inspector Wally Zavattero discovers hazardous conditions and orders precautions taken, they are ignored, leading to an explosion that killed 17 people. Protesting for equality, the senior citizens gather at the Van Nuys-Sherman Oaks Recreation Center to band together. A local resident videotapes the beating, which becomes a national discussion on police brutality.
With twenty billion dollars in damage, it is one of the costliest natural disasters in United States history. If the 300 square mile area that is the Valley were a single city, it would be the 5th largest in the nation.

This was originally planned to connect at the Outbuildings but actually the GRP cabinet makes more sense since it’s further out of the way. In order for the work to proceed I had to sign WPD’s acceptance form saying I was happy with the terms of their zero-cost proposal, which I did today. The proposed dwelling incorporates high levels of insulation and a ground source heat pump to help reduce the buildings energy consumption. The Sacred Expedition is a religious & military project of missionization and colonization on behalf of Spain. Using Native American workers to not only construct the mission but also work it, the mission quickly becomes one of the most prosperous in California, producing abundant harvests and goods.

Producers pelt metal nuts and bolts from the roof and police hose workers and throw tear gas. In July the Sodium Reactor Experiment suffers a partial meltdown; its estimated release is 240 times that of 3 Mile Island. Until now, there has been no one museum or institution to document, preserve, and celebrate the full scope of the collective history, culture, and arts of such an important place until the 2005 incorporation of The Museum of the San Fernando Valley.

The mix of agrarian and industrial life at this early stage in the Valley’s history sets a precedent for the future economy of the Valley as a pastoral region with some areas of industry.
But the taking of this water destroys the environment and the economy of the Owens Valley, once a beautiful valley known for its migrating birds and diverse, self-sustaining ecosystems.
The dam fails upon its first full filling on March 12, killing 450 people in the San Francisquito and Santa Clara River valleys. Only Basic return postage cost will be covered, Any extra tracked or recorded services that are not requested by BMM RACING will be at your own cost.
To allow some flexibility for housing other electrical equipment it seemed sensible to go for a medium sized model – the IC2 GRP Kiosk from Moorland Composites Limited in Stoke-On-Trent. Senator Maclay goes to the County Recorder in Los Angeles and creates the City of San Fernando (township) through a map of development plans. This bloody event leads to the passage of the 1947 Taft Hartley Act, which severely restricts workers’ abilities to strike and the power of unions. Additional fuel-element handling accidents occurred during the recovery process that resulted in radiological releases to the environment and surrounding communities.
