In the summer of 2013 architect John Kinsley decided that an infill site near to his home in Portobello, Edinburgh, would make a good location for a communal self build. Three years later, the project is now getting underway on site – containing a number of flats in a traditional Scottish tenement type four-storey building. Build It will follow the project over the course of its build, between now and spring 2017, through a series of blogs written by John.
