I have been in the Army for over 20 years and saved up for the home my wife has always wanted. 3 years ago I finally was able to buy the house I we had been looking for, my family and I were so excited. We have lived all over the world and have still yet to live in our own home, so when we finally found this house we were excited. It's took another 3 years to save and do the house up to make it our own but we are finally there, after lots of plastering and painting, knocking down walls and fitting new a kitchen etc. I carried on saving and managed to switch fire to the garden as this is and the kitchen are where i spend most of my time and had the paving redone last year I even managed the old walls and fencing which blew down in the storms of 2016. All I need now is to gravel the front garden and have some small evergreen shrub/ bushes planted and A bit of pointing done around the walls of the house cemented as they seem to have weathered and that's it, we are all done. 20 + years of serving my country to saving up to complete a home for my family was worth all the time i spent away. A home we can be proud of. Winning this competition would mean the world to my family who have followed me where ever the Army take us, which has been a lot of military housing for so many years. The Garden being finished for when we arrive back from overseas to our final calling point in Catterick would be AMAZING. Please vote for me and my family x 🤞.
