Sean and Sophie bought their 1950s three-bedroom detached house in the sought after area of Swindon 10 months ago as they knew it had great renovation potential.
The rear of the property originally had four small rooms that were dark, gloomy and completely unusable but with the help of a local architect and builders, they took on their biggest renovation project to date.
By this time, Sophie, 35, was heavily pregnant with her daughter Murphy, now four months old. Sean, 31, who works for a grounds work and civil engineering company, said: “We realised that we could get so much more for our money if we took on a property that needed a lot of work and could be extended. When we came across our current house, we knew it had so much potential to become a really beautiful family home that we could design to suit how we live.”
They added a single-storey extension to create a large, open-plan kitchen and living room with three large VELUX INTEGRA® electric white painted roof windows to provide as much daylight and ventilation throughout the space as possible. To access the garden easily, they also added bi-fold doors.
