What is a "Project House"?
We help Projects along their way - spending just hours on some and years on those that are on-going.
And annually, many visiting students from around the World come to the HoBB via sites like helpX and Wwoof to help us grow the HoBB Project House into an ever better place of useful action. This year we are starting a charity project on aquaponics and will be doing some research on water use, organic plant feeds and farming systems.
We keep a good balance of helping and being-helped. We never know what project is around the next corner so it could be yours if you wish hard enough.
If your project is yet to start, some way along its progress, or even on-hold, you may be looking for some space to do some fresh thinking on it. You can find this at the HoBB Project House by ‘dropping-in’ for a cuppa and a chat or by taking a break for a couple of days to concentrate on your Project, away from the distractions of regular home-work-life.
Whatever stage your Project has reached, you will find it of interest to receive new input, new ideas and new insights. We’re great at providing all three and more. [We are happy to sign a non-disclosure form - see a FREE example by clicking on 'non-disclosure form' link at the bottom of this page]
If you love doing projects, see the HoBB profile on HelpX (Help Exchange) for updates on the project's we are doing, the ones we have tackled and those we have a wish to do. HelpX is free and you will discover many HelpX hosts.
There are several Project Houses in the World but nearly all of them are linked to large city companies and therefore, situated in large cities.
Our Project House, The HoBB, is hidden away in peaceful, beautiful countryside where time ‘stops’ long enough to allow your project to surface fully, without distraction.
So when you need a break and really want to concentrate on your Project away from the distractions of everyday life, come to The HoBB, a traditional stone farmhouse with open fires and a host of fresh country creature comforts – a very green location for your ever greener shoots to grow.

Visit the home of Little People Books
We first started designing and producing little art books. Then one day, a visitor to the HoBB brought us a project idea which included the production of storybooks for children and Little People Books was born.
"The rest, so they say, is history."
Our next leap into storybooks has to be ebooks, video books and audiobooks but first, we need to get some training in sound, motion capture and animation.
Maybe you could help us with filming or editing?
* You can see some of our printed books here> Elfland Books in the making - download your FREE Elf Colouring Sheets now!
We are redesigning www.littlepeoplebooks.co.uk at the moment so it is responsive. It was done directly in html and we're moving it to WordPress soon
On the new site:
* There will be further photographs of 'behind the scenes' showing the scenery used in the ten books about our little 'Elf' character. Some of the sets and props already appear throughout our Elf books and Elf's hat is pictured on the front cover of each book. He'll be wearing it in the storytelling videos or if he's too shy, it will be on my head.
Meanwhile, here are a few of the screen shots from the new site:
