Building Their Future by Lisa Sibbald Southside Publishing 2019




In 1950s Edinburgh, some groups of men took a novel approach to the post-war housing shortage by forming associations and building their own homes. This is the story of the Dunedin group who built fifty-five houses on an area of former farmland in Oxgangs Farm Drive and Oxgangs Farm Grove.

The book tells the story of how the houses were designed and built, the community that lived there, and memories from past and present residents. Photographs from the earliest days of the development up until the present day show how the area has grown and changed over the years, but still remains a unique place to live.
