Q Why did you not decide on 'off plan'?
A We had a very focused idea of what we required and the only way to achieve this was to design it ourselves.
Q Were you happy with your finished house?
A By and large yes. The builder we had was brilliant. The TV programme helped and the fact that we moved out before the house was completed also helped to move things along.
Q You say your being here on the island helped the project?
A Yes of course we could keep our eye on building works and make decisions when needed. We were able to question why building was not proceeding.
