Works to convert water tower into a futuristic energy-efficient home close to completion
A project to transform a disused water tower into a futuristic home is close to completion.
Owner Dennis Pedersen bought the rusty military tank in Peddars Way, Castle Acre, in 2014 and was granted permission to convert it into a two-bedroom house.
The structure is being transformed into a four-storey property with a spiral staircase and glass bridges.
Mr Pedersen said his vision is close to becoming a reality as works are due to finish this summer. He has recently been granted permission to install 12 solar panels on a shipping container to power his new stylish home.
He said the solar panels will produce enough energy to power a vehicle to travel 8,000 miles annually.

The installation of solar panels raised some objections from nearby residents of the impact on amenity and views, but West Norfolk council's planning committee approved the plans, with councillor Avril Wright adding: "This is an innovative and exciting design."
