From Dream to Reality

The Build - From Dream to Reality

Many people dream of starting a new life in a new land, some actually do it.

In 2004 we left England to follow a dream. At first we rented a small house and set about integrating ourselves in the community. We all learnt German, the girls attended the local schools and I became a ski instructor. After three years we decided to build our own house and to open up a B&B.

Here is a step by step photo record of our build.
