Need a bigger house?

Here is a novel way to expand the size of your house on the cheap.

1) Live in a terraced house on a hill.
2) Ensure you are lower down the hill than your next-door neighbour.
3) Tunnel underneath your neighbour’s house.
4) Create a new room underneath their living room.
5) Be very quiet.

This might sound a bit silly, but whilst doing the construction work on an extension we have designed, the builder put his foot through the floor. Upon further investigation we discovered that the neighbours had tunnelled under and made a new bathroom!

Sometimes the sheer audacity of people astounds me.

bloody hell, that's a bit of a shocker! Was anyone on the loo when he put his foot through?

It made me laugh out loud too - probably because all Tracys are alike!!! I would fill their basement extension with concrete if it were my house!!!
