Innisfree is a unique house on the water surrounded by a natural playground with stunning views. She has six double bedrooms and an indoor play space large enough for table tennis or to kick a ball around. She has all the modern comforts: internet, telephone, power showers, electricity and central heating. She also features an open-plan kitchen with a large social/family area filled with natural light. Plus an office, two bathrooms, a storeroom, a workshop and a large, private sundeck.
Designed to be a warm, spacious, flexible and inspiring home, she cost less to build than a one-bedroom apartment. How is that possible? This book will answer that question.
Nick Skeens is the father of three young men, a writer, a journalist, a media consultant, teacher, sailor, DIY enthusiast and, up to a point, a musician.
