The challenge.

The problem: we love our house. It’s in a fabulous place, just on the edge of a great town, with everything we need, countryside and allotments ten minutes walk one direction, the beach fifteen minutes in the other. But it’s a bungalow and really on the small side for the family of four who moved in, and now straining at the seams to fit in a family of six.

The solution: raising the roof to add another floor. We could put in four decent bedrooms with two bathrooms and we’d be set.

But that is going to cost. Probably around ยฃ100,000. This blog is to document how we raise the money without radically changing our home educating, work from home lifestyle.

I hope you enjoy the ride.
