In my mid 30s I realised that we were living cramped into the smallest housing option that Dublin has to offer. A city with the sole purpose of squeezing as many people in as they can and charging a fortune for the privilege.
Some people even brag about how small their flat is, and how they love the well-known flat-pack furniture outlet, which prides itself on designing furniture for the smallest spaces possible.
So me and my better half, decided to pack up and move to the country. Bought a 6 bedroom doer-upper farm house with loads of out houses. The house had been abandoned for over 2 years so the local wild life had moved in. Still with a little imagination and an overflow of positive thinking we can see how this can be a beautiful family home.
