One man built a bungalow

We have previously featured the building of a bungalow at the top of Northbrook in 1952 in Building Locksands Farm. We now have a copy of an article in the Wiltshire Gazette about this.

Ron Kimmer designed it himself. ‘Plans? Oh I just sat down one evening and designed it myself’, he said. It took him just over a year to build it, working all hours around his working life, but not on Sundays.

We will look at how he kept his costs down next time.
