‘I think people often use their house as a means to try to change themselves. It’s foolish, because people don’t necessarily change. Rather than imagining what would make you happy, it’s a much more clever idea to remember what makes you happy. I’d like to reflect those values, rather than base your design on a collection of brands you’ve seen in a magazine. Often you go into some people’s houses and it’s another white box with a glass wall, and it’s full of B&B Italia. It’s lovely, but where is the story in all of that? Where is the personal expression? What have they done? The great thing about having a house designed for you is that it’s not just you commissioning something, it’s having yourself built into the building.’ – Kevin McCloud
It has now been almost 2 months since I posted last. Perhaps it has been the most stressful two months we have had yet.
Perhaps its the fact that all the milestone dates we had set down have long past.
Perhaps it because we have actually run out of money and are now relying on family and friends and the goodness of our tradies – until of course the banks finally give us the money.
Perhaps its because its been a long year.
I can safely say this that we are now very close.
Now all we need is a wink and a prayer.
