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!!

I Stole Her Style...............

I have been following "The House that A-M Built" blog for a while now, and totally fell in love with A-M's walk-in pantry the minute I saw the post.....so much so in fact, I redesigned an area of my kitchen plan to have one just like it. There you go A-M, "imitation is my sincerest form of flattery"

Mrs C's soon to be Walk-In Pantry

  1. As every good house designer should do Mrs C! I stole lots of my ideas from others too. My laundry is a complete copy of a laundry from Traditional Home. I took the pictures to my cabinet maker and said " as close to that as possible please". Would you like me to send you some detailed photos of the internals of my pantry - shelving etc or even better, my plans! I have send my kitchen dimension, cabinetry plans to many a world wide blogger. I am so happy to share...and I am totally flattered and humbled! A-M xx Australia

  2. Thanks for your comments A-M...I would LOVE your pics & pantry plans!!!


Don't be shy....it's great to receive a comment!
