Every now and then Yvonne answers -with a big laugh- “Tons hands are made of gold!” Its true: Ton designed a lot of things, furniture and accessories, but he also built the house, stone by stone. It is more than 30 years ago that Ton and Yvonne found out that on the outskirts of their village several building plots came for sale. “That same evening we decided to go for it. We bought a piece of land and designed our new house. We hired a contractor to build the outer walls and the roof and Ton built the rest of the bungalow by himself.” Their interior can be described as ‘a rural atmosphere with a touch of brocante’. To find special things the couple often visits France. They look out for local flea markets and ‘vide greniers’ and return home with a car full old and new items.
