The Groundhouse Build

We’ve been featured on Channel 4’s Grand designs hosted by Kevin McCloud. This particular episode follows the journey of Daren Howarth and Adrianne Nortje whos dream was to build a ‘Groundhouse’.

A groundhouse is defined to be a house ‘grounded’ or aligned with nature in all three aspects of design; architecture, systems and materials.

Knowing all the hard work put in by this couple over many months, it was a great feeling to know that they would be relaxing in our very own Taper Four Poster Bed at the end of it all. Like all of our beds, the Taper Four Poster is made from solid plank timbers sourced from sustainable forests; coupled with the fact that we plant a tree for every order over £500 with the help of the Woodland Trust, it was easy to see why they chose Indigo for their furniture.
