Much prefer building the dream 

with ordinary people Rather than these who have an ecstatics 100 k in there back pocket Should they need it 

 

I was just making this point to my wife when a lady who had used lots of Nickuraguan mahogany 

Kevin’s asked why Nickiraguan 

She replied went on holiday Saw an island there Decided to buy it and build a hotel

I rest may case

They're not all like that. The last one I watched was a family near Leominster who ended up with a black tin shack. They had quite a lot of tribulations and had to redesign to be able to build something affordable. Ended up with a simple, but acceptable design.

 

They're still middle class and comfortably off, but no sign of an extra 100k in the back pocket.

But did they buy an island and build a hotel on it 😂

I thought the house in Henley was stunning - ICONIC (overused word I know) and they took their time to get it right and must have spent millions. I guess its about learning how to appreciate things which don't exude bling but nonetheless have cost a lot to achieve, as was I suspect the case with the Henley house last evening.
