None of this would be possible without the amazing help and passion of the following people – I am sure I have driven them insane at times!!;-)
We first met Yannis when this was all in the “might be an idea phase” and we flew to Athens to see him and look at the containers.
He was incredibly patient with all our questions and climbing in and out of all the containers and has been on hand through the whole process – you are in Greece and need a container – speak to this guy!!!
These guys have both been amazingly patient with us – ok with me! – and I think thought we might be a bit mad in the beginning, but once we showed them some previous builds and they started to put our dream onto paper, have been fantastic.
TRANSPORT FOR THE CONTAINERS –
The wonderful and again patient Manolis Miaris who drives our containers from Hellenic containers here to Corfu!! If you want one moving this is your man!! ;- )
ACCOUNTANT AND INSURANCE –
Here in Greece, unlike the UK, we all use accountants even when we don’t have a business! If you have any kind of property it is advisable to have one as you will have to do a tax return every year, even if you don’t have a property it is easier to do your return if they do it for you [you would not want to make a mistake!!! LOL] I actually call George “Oracle moo” [My Oracle] as anything to do with any kind of law or information I need I ask him! He is always prompt to reply and if he doesn’t know always tries to find out for me!!
AMAZING NEIGHBOURS –
We have a couple at the end of our road, He is Greek [Dennis] and she is English [Anneka] who bless them have helped us find local people to dig, chop, and pretty much everything else … Always on hand for local advice and often a box of fresh eggs from their chickens!
