A BLOCK IN A HARD PLACE
I wrote and illustrated this book in 2012, it was first published in 2013, with a second edition in 2015.
This book tackles issues very close to my heart - housing affordability and our misuse of space. A Block in a Hard Place was born from looking at properties for sale with my clients. I noticed how blocks for sale with obvious issues, sold for much less. However, these “issues” always presented in my mind, an exciting opportunity to create a unique design that worked around the site's limitations. From that, the book explored the varying difficulties and their work arounds, so that more people could afford a block of their own.
