And the good news is....

And the good news is that the council have f.i.n.a.l.l.y said YES.  We are so excited.  Our dream, forever-home is now the shinning light at the end of the tunnel.  And although we feel like the waiting game is over, really it has only just begun.

Now we wait for builders.  Quotes are yet to come back and the work is yet to start.  But, we are excited and hopeful.  Interiors are being planned, samples are building up and my scrap book of ideas is bulging at the seams.  I  don't just have a mood board, I have a mood file, with separate sections for each room with additional sections for things like 'style' and 'storage'.  Geek?  moi?

But, we aren't there yet.  There is still a lot more waiting to do and once the builders start there will be more things to wait for, but it will be exciting things, like plaster and paint to dry.  Who would have ever thought that waiting for paint to dry would be exciting?!


  1. Oh I am so excited for you! Your own home build. What a dream come true xx

  2. That is wonderful news!!!!! SO so happy for you all! Looking forward to hearing about the progress.

    In this country, they always say to double the estimate and the time schedule and that's about what it will really cost and how much time it will really take! Hopefully things work more closely to plans over there!

    And I think it's absolutely perfect to be a house geek! I'm a big "planner", so can totally relate. :)

  3. thank you!

    I'm sure one or two posts about the barns magical renovation will be popping up here.
