This issue2

Every new year brings change, and for you, this is the perfect time to rethink your home and embark on that grand design you’ve been dreaming of. Whether it’s a total new-build, an extension, or you’re simply revamping rooms, we have ideas to try in the February edition.

A highlight this issue – from the TV series – is Mark and Candida Diacono’s fabulous eco-friendly house that combines both traditional and new building methods.

If you want to improve your home, be inspired by Julie and Neil Archer, who gave their fifties house an impressive makeover, while our grand guide has all you need to know about building kit homes from scratch.
