Earlier this year, we bought a house that needed a lot of renovation and one of the many items on our to-do list was to create an open plan kitchen that would complement our lifestyle. As this was our first time taking up such a task (we have only watched it on Grand Design type programs), we were completely lost at times but luckily our builder, James Cook, guided us along the way. After the supporting beam arrived, he soon took down the wall which opened up the space into the kitchen.

Gardening requires a large area of fertile land with the ideal balance of sunlight and shade, good drainage, enough rain and little chance of frost. Right? No! Of course not!

If your family is growing in number and you’re living in a small flat or townhouse, it is possible you are going to consider either moving to a bigger house or adding an extension. In the UK, most people would go for the latter option, owing to the statistics from the Office of National Statistics that the country spends close to £30 billion every year on home improvements, with a significant number being extensions.
