‘In 2004, I was renting a two-bed place locally but with two young boys, I needed more room. I found a house that was dated and needed redecorating, but it had the space we wanted and good-sized garden.’ At first, the owner rented it from the council while studying for a degree in computer science, but after she graduated and began to work, she bought the house in 2007. ‘I redecorated it throughout, then saved up for a bathroom suite. Next, I had a new driveway laid and an office built on the side of the house. Lastly, it was time to tackle the kitchen.’
