Bill, a physician, and Barb, a stay-at-home mother have a large, unique family of 6 kids. For the past 10 years they have been raising the children on an 83 acre farm in rural Kentucky. Even while in medical school though Bill always dreamed of living in New Zealand because the beauty of the country and its' universal healthcare system has always appealed to him. Now that it is financially feasible and he has secured a job working for the New Zealand government's healthcare agency, the entire family is packing up and moving to the small seaside city of New Plymouth, New Zealand. This large family of eight are taking a big step moving from the large farm to the city center of New Plymouth but are looking forward to being just blocks from the beach and immersing themselves in the new culture. With a wish list of 4 to 5 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, the greatest challenge will be finding a house big enough to fit the entire family while trying to remain within budget.
