Scope and content

The collection contains records relating to Take Root, the self-build group which existed from 1993 to the early 2000s. It contains meeting, finance and administration papers, correspondence, construction plans, press cuttings, publications and photographic and audio-visual materials. Because Take Root worked with several other organisations in Glasgow and Scotland, the collection contains meeting papers of Molendinar Park Housing Association and press cuttings and publications of various self-build projects including the Walter Seagal Self-Build Trust, Community Self-Build Scotland, and Centre for Alternative Technology.
