My thoughts, ramblings and attempted on-line build diary of our new home in Co. Limerick, Ireland.
Welcome to my blog
We moved to Ireland with the notion of building our "dream" home in May 2007 after purchasing the site earlier on that year. Mr C is Irish and originally from Limerick but he remains in the UK during the week, his job is running www.cruise.co.uk and earning the bucks that will hopefully allow us to "live the dream."
It's taken us almost two years but ground will be broken on the site by the end of May 09!! A lot of blood, sweat & loads of tears (all mine!) have gone into this project already, we left a fabulous house behind in Newcastle...and now for my Kevin McLeod bit, "can the new build can live up to my expectations and the old house we left behind"? I'm not sure...keep watching my blog and you'll find out!!
Well the day has finally arrived, work on site actually started today. The first job being to dig out the ditch to the front of the site, a pipe will be laid to drain all the water (and there was a fair bit of it around today) into the stream to the side. The small stream will be dug out further and will hopefully end up being a unique feature. The whole project is scheduled to be completed within 14 months, a nice dry summer would certainly help things along, so keep your fingers crossed for us.
