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 . . . . .
