Our clients relocated from their countryside home into a market town, where they found a 1970s house, surrounded by gardens, in an ideal location. They loved the setting of their new home but felt the house required renovation in order to update the facade and provide a more spacious living environment. This podcast walks us through their journey, from finding and choosing a house to hiring an architect, to the realities of living and working with builders on site during a construction project, and the delight of living in their completed extension. “Living here, it was ok before but it’s brilliant now. It just lifts the spirit.”
