This was a delight. So glad I picked it up on the strength of its title. The fact that I loved this book will surprise no one who knows me. Pitch perfect British tone.
I now have new respect for people who have houses built, though it also terrifies me. The chapter on bulldozing the land to make way for the builders was amazing.

Lyrical description of finding the perfect piece of English countryside and building the perfect house on its hillside. Lovely descriptions of the countryside and all who participate in the move. Wonderful description if a little dense at times.
