As a girl Dorien dreamed of a house with a lot of outdoor space, so she could accommodate her own horse in her own meadow. Now Doriens Frisian horse Hanne runs in the backyards of a large long farmhouse. “Rob and I bought this typical farmhouse fifteen years ago. We needed more space for our dog, the cats, chickens, horse and our two children!” The couple visited this old house, put in their bid and found out a week later that they were the lucky ones! They became the owners of a very nice, but very poor maintained Dutch farmhouse. First they made a temporary home in the half open barn. With a mobile shower, a caravan used as a bedroom and surrounded by their household and all their animals they lived there for ten months and began rebuilding the farm. “It sounds like a Christmas telling! To complete the picture even our pony gave birth to a little foal.” But after the kitchen was ready and the AGA cooker installed, the family moved into their new home and Dorien started creating a cozy interior.
