John and Pauline say: Our house was a typical 1930s, semi-detached, ex-council house that had had the wrong things done in the wrong order to it since the last tenant bought it. The 1930s was a peak house-building period, so many people could copy what we did or do better. We will help other people who wish to do something similar.
