The modest dream was to make the move from my flat albeit a very comfortable, attractive one to a house.  I never really adjusted to the London Victorian conversion. It felt like I was constantly surrounded by invisible flatmates – seldom seen but always heard.

There were also other reasons for taking on this project which if you are so inclined you can read about here.
