    I think it's great :)

    There's no mention of planning permission in the story and I wonder how long it is before the council come sniffing around after some council tax? And just which property band would they fit that into?

    I reckon the fella fell on his feet, free housing in exchange for part time gamekeeping.

    Well it's certainly unique and actually looks very cosy. :thumb:

    I too, hope the Council jobs-worthies don't get heavy about planning permission, etc.

    The correct answer seems to be: IT DEPENDS.
