For so many people, the dream to live in the countryside never gets beyond dream stage – but among those who do achieve it, there are few who regret the decision.

Getting permission to build oneself is a difficult process – and managing then to actually find a contractor involves a whole other level of stress. Fine if you’re up to it – but how much more convenient it is to be able to buy.
