Met up with Nigel the owner of South Downs Eco Homes, at the site of a new build on the South Downs. Not just any new build but a highly efficient eco home built to Passive House (Passiv Haus) standards.
This type of self build is becoming very popular is it is environmentally friendly, extremely energy efficient and airtight.
A Passivhaus uses around 90% less energy for heating than a typical building and 75% less than typical new builds.
Fresh air is introduced via a heat recovery ventilation system (MVHR) which removes the heat from the stale outgoing air which would normally be lost in a leaky conventional build.
The web site is a basic one page design using bootstrap 4, with a contact form, we host the site and manage the domain names.
The plan will be to add more detail and photographs as the build progresses. With regards to photography, I took a few stills on site along with a few drone images, as the new build is in a beautiful location.

We recently completed this reasonably sized website for the specialist rail electrical safety company based in Petersfield. Not only do they provide specialist safety training for companies in the rail industry, but they also offer leadership and management training for other industries.
The new website is now operating under the www.leepsconsulting.co.uk rather than the original leeps.eu domain, this wasn’t a political shift or a Brexit driven decision but more of an aesthetic one! The original domain is now directed to the new one.
To enable an increased level of functionality and for the business to add their own news items and event details, wordpress was the obvious choice. The event manager is particularly powerful, this allows new training events to be posted online with a booking facility.
LEEPS Consulting are looking to the future and are planning virtual reality safety solutions to enhance rail safety procedures. We are working with them with this exciting new technology, please watch this space!
Discus Potters Wheels
Working with this new company who have taken over a business which design and manufacture pottery wheels. A very niche market but they have an excellent range of potters wheels for beginners, amateurs and professionals. The company is Discus Potters Wheels and is based in Petersfield, Hampshire. They have tweaked the design and also the engineering making it an extremely powerful but yet compact potters wheel.
From my point of view working with Nick (the owner) has been a pleasure, regular meetings to discus the development of the site and marketing strategy. We decided on a wordpress site with a woocommerce online store, social media marketing will focus on instagram, facebook and also twitter. An email marketing campaign will also be created, but complying with the latest GDPR rules.
Interested in seeing the range of discus potter’s wheels? Or perhaps just to see what we could do together? Please visit the site at https://www.potterswheels.co.uk
A busy time for web design and especially wordpress, I recently helped Roger at www.triplevengineering.co.uk to move his unfinished engineering website to my hosting package, updates were then made to his site to improve some of the sections and also make it visible on the major search engines. An SSL certificate was also added to the site to improve it’s security.
Call me now on 07798 711271 if you need any help with your site.
Tom my chef son wanted to add another pop up, this time at our local restaurant Annie Jones. We had previously updated his site and it was no issue to create a new product line for people to place orders. Thanks to the power of social media and local press, the tickets sold out within 2 weeks.
Recently created this web-site for Broadlands Meadows Farm, an Alpaca farm based in Sheet, Petersfield.
The site is a static site and is mobile optimized, complete with location map and contact form. I also took the majority of the photos on the site over a couple of visits.
The farm contains a large herd of Alpaca but also Ronaldsay Sheep, Boreray Sheep, Angora Goats, Donkeys and some Chickens. The Alpaca are very cute and I was lucky enough to photograph a new born Alpaca and Angora.
The farm is incredible in that it sells a wide range of products produced from the farm, garments, yarns, hay, haylage and even Alpaca Poo, yes Poo! It also caters for lots of organisations and schools who visit the farm to enjoy the animals and experience the country life.
