When you live in an area for many years, you don’t always notice the changes folk make to their houses unless you take the same walks every week. I had this recently when caring for a family dog.

We have had a really strange year so far. The pandemic has of course altered all the normal ways we would operate and many changes in construction have had to take place. The housing market in general had to come to a complete halt for a period until the government allowed the resumption of building of new houses. Now that […]» Read more

But this suddenly and dramatically stalled when the virus pandemic hit the UK shores and […]» Read more

No one would have thought back then, thousands of years, that they’d ever be living in such comfort as we do now. The differences in the last century have also been been pretty dramatic […]» Read more
I have been looking at my house lately – not that I’m completely unfamiliar with it of course. But after nearly twenty years, it’s beginning to show a little justified aging. I’ve not actually considered the design concept of the lovely comfortable family exec home. It still looks very nice, airy & attractive. My wonderment and anxiety concerns the actual […]» Read more
