The Crooked House

I was just reading this article about the house I have yet to visit but in my imagination is the kind of place I would like to have live in. I love the idea of assimilating a 21st Century life into a way of living that draws from a myriad of found materials. I am constantly trawling through ads looking for interesting reclamation. Imagine using 16th Century stairs,  rustic doors and windows etc. I first saw the Crooked House in Country Living maybe 20 years ago it struck a cord then and still does and the Welsh Borders are special.

 Lots of Great Tits and Blue Tits on the fat balls, there hasn't been any sunflower seeds in the shops for weeks. The sheep are in the home field as I like to keep an eye on them. There is still lots of bramble leaves and they have supplementary feed too. I need to find some hay for variety. The geese don't mind the cold, neither do the sheep. They all have shelter under the house, a Cave which is the traditional way.
