This project is not just ours as it could not have happened without the help and encouragement of the following people –

Yannis at Hellenic containers –

We first met some time ago now when we turned up wanting to see lots of containers and ask a million and one questions… I had emailed and spoken to other depots for containers, but his friendliness and willingness to answer the million and one questions sealed it – he was from the first moment helpful and also had ideas on container sizes etc …








Our fantastic engineers/architects who did not laugh at us when we turned up at their office telling them what we wanted to do and have been so helpful and brilliant at getting the permit – even though it was delayed with Covid! Dimitris and Niko !!!


The wonderful Manolis – our driver who bought the containers from Athens all the way to Corfu!







Our wonderful accountant and insurance broker – George – who I call “My Oracle” as he finds out everything LOL…. very hard to find insurance for shipping containers !!!







KONTOS FENCING – To Spiro and Ilias and “The Panda” –  for their great and very speedy work at fencing the land – even when it meant climbing and digging holes in !!





The AMAZING DRIVER Fotis – who works for the Merianos building yard and was our crane driver bringing the containers from where Manolis had got as close as possible to putting them exactly where they should go – even one while he had a flat tyre that had burst on an olive tree root …. this guy is a crane MASTER!



To Leigh at Off-Grid Solar for our amazing solar-powered system !

Thanks to  Cleveland containers that sold us one of the high cubes that the solar system was pre-installed in and shipped over by Kuehne and Nagel

And of course our family and friends … who obviously thought we were mad but just knew it anyway …..who keep us supplied with humour and when needed chocolate and alcohol, who help where they can and in times of Covid supported from afar, but we can still feel the love….your holiday home will soon be ready!! LOL

But mainly for Jamie – our son who has been amazing – working evenings and weekends and working his butt off – we dreamt of this project for years – one day it will be ready …….and for who really this will be all for …….. We are so proud of you!!!
