We're delighted that Kevin McCloud is visiting Mumsnet HQ for another webchat on Tuesday 23 July at 8.30pm. He joined us for a webchat back in June 2011 when he talked to about (amongst other things) Grand Designs, solar panels and dealing with bats in the attic.

This time Kevin will be joining us to tell us about his latest ventures with his company Hab Housing. As well as continuing to build beautiful sustainable homes across the UK, they are also developing a new arm that will let him guide, coax and aid people as they build their own dream home. Kevin wants to explain why he's put out a call to the masses for crowd funding investment to grow his company, Hab Housing, rather than via traditional routes.

Join Kevin to quiz him about his latest ventures, get his advice on home improvements and ask him about your favourite Grand Design on Tuesday at 8.30pm. If you're unable to make it, post a question in advance to this thread.

Damn. Missed this. Howver I do now have a tenuous link to Kevin.... I live in a Richard Murphy property.

I can testify to the fact that good design can make you happy. I love coming home even on grey horrible days (frequent occurence here in the frozen north) and I can't understand why Scottish local authorities are so nervous about allowing modern design in. At some point 4 in a block pebble dash houses were modern albeit not very avant grade!

Thanks, Kevin.
