A Castle in the Sky

In March 2013, after years of talking about it we eventually sell up and move out of the city with our 2 year old, Gracie. We both grew up in the countryside and this is what we want for our daughter. So we swap a 2 bed flat in London for a small country pile on the west coast of Scotland that needs a lot of work. I've done a bit of interior design and my partner, Ed has a good knowledge of the outdoors – but we're on a tight budget and we've both got a lot to learn. It's a life time's project and this is a record of our adventure…

All we want for Christmas is a wood pellet boiler… (Oct 7)

10am. The builders are here.  The scaffolding is up and there are several men on the roof trying to put an extremely large silver tube down the boiler house chimney.


3pm.  It’s in.  Thank God.  Tomorrow we order the boiler!

  1. Hi
    I’ve just been reading your story! very exciting!
    I came across your blog because I was searching for sites with stories about wood pellet boilers!

    I run a small website, http://www.woodpelletboilerhq.com to help people make informed decisions about wood pellet systems. At present the site is in its early days, we are looking for case studies to feature on the site and I wondered if you’d be interested in keeping us updated with your progress and how it all goes? It would be great to feature your story.

    Either way, I hope all goes well for you and that you have heating before Christmas!!!
