Romantic Cottage Dreams Crushed By Garage Door

On a recent stay with relatives who live in the country amid lots of gorgeous stone and thatch cottages, I was very seriously taken with the idea of living in such a beautiful place.  Just for a few years of dreamily romantic fun.  Obviously I was persuaded not to do anything rash by my very smart companions.  I did proffer he idea that I let my nice but overly large family house out and rent a cottage for a while.  This idea did meet with more approval than the other.  Then came the endless list of pitfalls.  My current house would need totally clearing out from top to bottom; that would require repairs to the garage door wihich doesn’t up and over as efficiently – need to get garage door specialist in.  Clearing 17 years of junk overload! I was recommended to engage a property studio to advise and redress my house, clearing as they go.  To get it in first class rentable shape to allow me to indulge . . . . .
