Home Truths by British Gas and Channel 4

We all love to look at other people's homes and lifestyles. That's why we're all hooked on TV shows where ordinary people fulfill their dreams to create a 'Grand Design' or 'Amazing Small Spaces'. It's also why we love working on every issue of Heart Home mag - it beats wandering the neighborhood at dusk peering through windows!

British Gas has worked with Channel 4 to share some great stories about people’s relationships with their homes including 'Gaudi in Berkshire', 'Living in my Playhouse' and 'The Pub Under the Stairs' to name but a few. Each short film is inspirational for different reasons but we'd love to share this one with you here. It's the story of one young couple who decided that a mortgage on a new house was currently beyond their means so they decided to live on a boat. It's very sweet.

Do you have your own story to tell? We'd love to hear about it and it might inspire others too.

You can see the rest of the short films in the Home Truths Hub
