Re: 7 years of hard work - finished! :)
Thanks guys! I'm really keen not to give the impression of privilege or wealth. I was brought up in my early years in an orphanage, & crawled my way up from there. All funds for this house were generated by previous projects, & all the work was mine. We're talking 10's of thousands of hours work. Every evening, every weekend for years & years. Essentially, we bounced off the back of our own work. The only thing I was ever privileged to receive was a crazy hard work ethic.
BTW, hardly an estate. It's about 2 acres.
