We’re back ! Have you missed us ?
Due to the bitter weather we have been indulging in the British national obsession with TV based property programmes.
Our viewing led us to the following conclusions. Excluding new-build houses, which are of no interest to us, the remainder were split into three types:-
Houses which retained their design both inside and out. These were a minority.
Houses which had been altered and extended (oh how the British love their extensions) and had ended up as The Great British Lash-Up. Most of these were unsellable.
The last category were barn conversions which in this day and age are few and far between, with the result that most so-called ‘barn conversions’ are actually former cowsheds, stables, pigsties and in fact any agricultural building which could be converted for human habitation.
Find us a barn and we will give you a palace !
