At a time when there has been so much profoundly moving coverage of the D Day landings, there is a very special exhibition taking currently place at Leeds town Hall.

If all the trappings and stresses of modern living are not for you, then looking to live that off-grid dream may be the perfect solution and the vision of an ideal lifestyle. So if you are looking for a simpler sustainable life, where do you start and what does off-grid living actually mean? To some people it may mean living off the main national grid, but to other people, this may extend to a life of total self- sufficiency, without relying on public utilities or water supply.

At David Phillip Estate Agents, one of our favourite Instagram accounts is ‘Find this door’ it has 182k followers and is a ‘community of Door Lovers’ – we love the vibrant and unusual pictures it posts of doors all over the world that are interesting, beautiful and historical and in nearly all cases they really stir the imagination. As I look at these pictures when they are posted on Instagram, it makes me wonder what lies behind each wonderful door and also the importance of the front door of any property.

Moving home can be quite stressful, although at David Phillip Estate Agents we try to make it as stress free as possible. Completion day has arrived, boxes have been packed and on the removal van so all that’s left to do is hand in your keys and do that final bit of cleaning to ensure your house is left in a pristine state for the new owners. People often think ‘why should I bother cleaning the house before I move’ but another way to think about it is to leave your home in the condition that you would want to be greeted with when stepping into the home you’ve just purchased! - There is nothing worse than having to clean a house around boxes / furniture / appliances, and absolutely nothing worse than having to clean other people’s mess and dirt!
