St Helena : OPEN DAY FOR ST HELENA’S FIRST STEEL FRAMED HOMES
Submitted by Saint Helena Herald (Public Relations Information Office) 24.08.2013 (Article Archived on 21.09.2013)

OPEN
DAY FOR ST HELENA’S FIRST STEEL FRAMED HOMES

 



St Helena is to have an Open Day
at one of its three new steel-framed homes, on Tuesday 27 August.

 



Opening at 10am until 6pm, members
of the public are invited to view the home, located near the second hole of the
Longwood Golf Course.



 



Housing Executive Andy Crowe said:



 



“This was a pilot project
where St Helena Government commissioned local builder, Adrian Duncan, to design
and build the steel framed houses in two locations on the Island. We’ve learnt a
great deal from the exercise and this will all be used to inform the bigger
project of the Half Tree Hollow Comprehensive Development Area.”



 



All three homes feature large
bedrooms, a small outside patio and fully fitted kitchens and bathrooms. Each
home has solar-powered water heating.



 



Andy commented:



 



“The cost of heating water
is normally very high, but with solar power we will be able to reduce the cost
of living for the occupants. Nearly all of the existing Government homes lack
an internal hot water supply so this is a pointer for the future.”



 



People taking advantage of the
Open Day will be asked for their ideas on the home. These views will then
inform the design guidance SHG provides for its new homes. The event will also
provide an opportunity for visitors to comment on SHG’s plans for the
development at Half Tree Hollow.
