Homes of Tomorrow

Children from Rosemellin C.P. Primary School in Camborne swapped classroom studies for home designing when they were asked to draw their dream homes of tomorrow in an event organised by Your Move estate agents.

The children were asked to draw and describe their dream tree houses as if they were being built on the nearby Enys Woods housing development being constructed by Kier Living & Sanctuary Housing.

The event was organised through the developers, Kier Living, membership of the Considerate Constructors Scheme, a national initiative which encourages best practice in the construction industry with a view to working and engaging with local communities.

Charlie Staines of LSL Land & New Homes, sister company to Your Move estate agents, organised the event and he explains:

“With the Enys Woods homes being located within walking distance of various local amenities, including Rosemellin School, it seemed fitting to approach the school and invite them to play a part in the new community.

The children clearly put a lot of effort into the project and picking eleven winners was difficult. There are certainly some budding architects of the future and I would encourage them to keep designing homes and hopefully one day we can sell one for them.”

In working with local communities Kier Living had invited the school to visit the site and learn about the construction industry.

Chris Churms of Kier Living commented “When we first approached the school to work with us on this project we had no idea how enthusiastic the children would be. We hoped they would enjoy designing their dream tree houses and when they visit the site after the school summer holidays they will see how Kier Living bring homes to life from architects drawings and designs.”

The Enys Woods development – which will be marketed through Your Move estate agents - will feature 99 new one, two, three and four bedroom homes created in partnership with Sanctuary Housing Group. All will benefit from spacious accommodation and far reaching countryside views with a mixture of purchasing options available. 

The Enys Woods homes will enjoy a beautiful setting with spacious accommodation and open spaces. There will be far reaching countryside views and the development will sit behind a striking Cornish hedge.

Charlie Staines adds “The drawings the children created were amazing, they all took so much time and you could see that so much thought went into their designs. Not only did they draw a dream tree house they also learnt about the trees.”

Winners of the competition all received special Kier Living goodies including art supplies for their use over the summer holidays. In addition the winning artwork will also be shortly featured on the site hoarding and within the soon to open onsite sales centre. Finally, each house type at the development has also named after the winning entries.

To commemorate the children’s achievements Kier Living will also be presenting the school with a special display in September.

Leanna Brokenshire of Rosemellin School comments “The children have thoroughly enjoyed this experience and are looking forward to visiting the site in September. To have the houses named after their designs is an honour and I hope that in the future the families that live in the homes will bring their children to this school.”

The Enys Woods development will include high specification one, two, three and four-bedroom homes. To register your interest in the development contact Your Move Camborne on 01209 711171 or via email at
