Have a decent bit of farmland, invite folk to come live there and help out, grow their own food/make a living there if they could. But, and it's a huge condition, I would have to win the lottery or something so I had the money to pump into it to speed the initial process up. We'd build some houses and have them ready to live in, give them rent free to those willing to come help us work the land and if they stuck it out for a few months and wanted to stay, sign the house over to them so they could have it indefinitely. It's a dream so it's not something I've researched. If I did win the lottery though, I'd be on here asking soooo many questions.
So this got me wondering what ishy things you would an obscene amount of money.
I personally would like to build some social/eco decent houses with gardens as most of the new build in this area are shoebox sized flats and teeny houses. My husband would like to replace the local outdated maternity unit with a bright new one in memory of our stillborn daughter.
Oh I would hire a cleaner!
lovely idea Chickerchargrill - I'm interested if you win
