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!!

Our site....soon to be building site

The site looked so beautiful today in the sunshine, in a way it does seem a shame that we will be spoiling all this with a house. Can't get too sentimental though, if it wasn't us putting up a house here, it would be someone else.
The site is located in Barringtons Bridge, Lisnagry which is just within the Limerick 'pressure zone' . This means that Mr C had to prove that he used to live just a stones throw away from where we intend to build, and that indeed his family were still living there. Planning can only be granted in areas like this to locals in need of housing or those who once were locals (like Mr C) and are returning to Ireland to live.
