The saying is ‘location, location, location’ and that’s great if you’re in a desirable street, close to schools, or have a countryside or sea view, but often we choose a property for what it offers us internally.

Maintenance is key for ensuring your home is well looked after. Even things which you wouldn’t even think of... We are now coming into Spring and it’s time to start that essential Spring Cleaning and we have some good tips on things in your home to keep an eye on.

Do you fancy a change to your home? Why not move? Perhaps you buy a house with potential? Well, renovation may be the answer for you.

You could buy your dream home, in the most fantastic location, great price, superb garden but you feel like its missing something and you want to put your own stamp on your new home. Maybe putting an extension on your property, or turning your loft space into a bedroom?

There are many things which you can do to your property, all you need are ideas and inspiration.

At the beginning of 2017 our very own Karen Jardine and her husband Scot added a single storey Extension forming an open plan Kitchen/living room to the back of their property, turning their 1930’s chalet bungalow into the spacious contemporary living accommodation they wanted.
Karen has always had a real passion for interior design and property, Scot is not a qualified builder but had worked within the industry many years ago and as a DIY enthusiast been able to turn his hand to all aspects of building.
