Caroline Barry's well known SB home in Somerset burned down on the 23rd of 
January in a devastating fire
under what the fire brigade have described as suspicious circumstances, the 
SB wall was the only thing left standing.
Caroline is presently living with her son until she can get her caravan 
sorted and move back onsite but
true to Caroline's nature she is already planning on rebuilding her home but 
will have to start from scratch,
and will have to go through planning saga again with an 8 week wait!
any offers of help, donations etc would be most welcome and fund raising has 
been started and there will be
a website http://www.rebuildmyecohome.com/ online soon.
Caroline has been very active in promoting SB building over the years and as 
many of you will know has already
been through a series of planning appeals over several years and has fought 
hard to get permission to live in her home.
