Living in a mansion is something that many of us dream to be able to afford at some stage of our lives. Many of us will never have the means to be able to afford such a huge property, but that doesn’t stop us dreaming that we could live like a celebrity for a while. Lots of the biggest stars live in their own mansions, often having them built and designed exactly how they want them.
Just one of the benefits of being paid millions of dollars for their work. Although some of us can’t afford to have eighteen bedrooms, a pool, and the fancy car to park out the front, we do all want to enjoy the time we spend in our own homes. For lots of people that will mean installing a huge TV set, or just giving the walls a fresh coat of paint to make it an enjoyable place to spend time in.
One couple, Ron and Sue Corl had spent much of their married life moving homes, and living in places they couldn’t call their dream home. After some time together they both decided they should commit to creating their dream home and finding a way to make their fantasy become a reality.
Have you ever felt like building your own home, with your own bare hands? Ron and Sue chose to transform their 450-square foot home into their very own mini mansion.

Ron and Sue Corl met and fell in love decades ago, getting married in 1986. They haven’t always wanted too much and have been happily married just enjoying each other’s company, rather than spending lots of time and energy searching for material things that don’t interest them. They have always chosen to live within their means and have enjoyed a minimalist-style way of living, always avoiding living in a home that is bigger than what they require. Instead of living in mansions with dozens of rooms, they have chosen to live in small apartments or, as they did at one stage, take their lives on the road and live in a camper van.
