On 27 August 2013, St Helena Government (SHG) held an Open Day at one of the three new steel framed Government Landlord homes at Bottom Woods.
In an interview at the time, Housing Executive, Andy Crowe explained that the three homes took approximately eight months from start on site to completion and cost just over £50, 000 each to build. Included in the cost were a fully fitted kitchen, bathroom, carpeting and tiling.
SHG wish to make it known that the cost was understated and that approximately £66,680 were actually spent on each property to cover various costs including basic construction, pavements and drainage, retaining wall, internal design, project management, plans and landscaping and other minor works.
