Yesterday I met some friends for dinner and we talked about what we would do with our lives if we could do absolutely anything. You know, the kind of conversation you usually have on New Year’s Day when you suddenly get the urge to quit your job and run a beach-side cafe on a Greek island. My dream has always been quite simple and quite country based (no surprises there). My ‘one day’ plan is to have a little bit of land somewhere really peaceful, remote and beautiful, preferably near some water, but at this point I’m not too fussy, and to have one or two shepherd’s huts or gypsy caravans to rent out as a holiday retreat.
However, since I discovered Bert and May’s amazing prefab box homes my dream has gone up a level. Now I want (read *must have*) one of these to put on my imaginary field by my imaginary lake in my alternative life. Possibly the most stylish flat pack homes ever, these pre-designed and fully kitted-out ‘boxes’ are £175k (for the two bedroom version here) and they can be delivered and assembled in ONE day. Yes you read that right, although I’m not sure I did – hang on, let me check. Yes, according to their website they can deliver, unwrap and put it together in just one day. I want one…
You can find out more about Bert & May on their website (I’m a big fan) and if anyone wants to buy me one of these little boxes to set me up for my new life that would be lovely.
