It has been built using the latest techniques, full of mod-cons and to highest design specs.

A local family was chosen to live in the house for six months and be electronically tagged for some of that time.

The idea is to find out how we use houses and what do people really want from their living spaces.

The results which we will have exclusively, ahead of national launch, will help architects, house-builders and designers work out the "perfect home"

  • Sarah Campbell has the results of the survey which finds out just what one family thought of the life house having been tagged

  • And we heard from the designer, and consultant on the project Laurence Llewelyn Bowen who came into the Breakfast studio.

    Watch that interview from the link to the right of this page.
