About this blog

This is the story of our project to upgrade a 1950s 2 storey detached house in Leicestershire to an almost air tight, highly insulated 4 storey family home. And we do all the work ourselves....We have nearly finished it now, but i have decided to put the story up here as and when i get time. Maybe it will be helpful for people considering the same type of thing.

fast forward - 2022

Three years, two planning applications and an expensive appeal later we began preparing works. And no we didn't get permission for a new build. Instead we got planning permission for an 11m extension, basement and loft conversion of the old existing house, plus a large stable block in the back field.   The new design involved extending the rear of the house out 4m as three stories and then a large flat roofed single storey a further 7m, which will sit over a 30sqm basement.
