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!!

We woz nearly on telly......

Received an interesting email yesterday from Gemma, a researcher at True North Productions. Apparently there will be a new  series for BBC Daytime called 'To Build or not To Build.' on your screens soon in the UK, It will be presented by Kristian Digby, following his own self-build project and meeting a vast spectrum of self-builders from around the UK. 

Anyway she had got my details though my membership of the Homebuilding and Renovating site and was after more details from me to see if our project would be suitable to feature.  First thought that sprung into my head, "oh no, car crash, us portrayed as the 'Osbornes' of self-build"  Anyway as it turned out our project isn't far enough advanced to be featured, much to the annoyance of my two older daughters who are part of the 'X Factor' generation and would do anything to be on telly!
