One happy family

I had a call from Ben in the Dundee Area of the Natal Midlands. “We need to make space on our farm for the next generation” He said.

“Our idea is to move out of the present house, which has plenty of room for a growing family; and we need an additional home that would accommodate my wife and myself comfortably, but also more serve as a home for further family members.”

After much discussion and looking at various other options, such as converting old equipment sheds, we decided to build from scratch. This is always a better option, I agreed, as the real costs of a home are in the finishes, fixtures and fittings. Ben would also have to construct another storage/equipment shed.

By building a new abode, one can select a prime position that allows for privacy, views, orientation and functionality. This sketch layout may be a little large for a semi-retiring couple, but so much furniture needed to be relocated. Then of course, there’s the future use.
