Amy is in the middle of the renovation of a period property in rural Suffolk. She's taken a hands-on DIY approach to the project, knocking down walls, restoring oak beams and laying slabs herself with the help of family members to save costs. She has largely focused on using natural materials, such as limestone, oak and sisal carpet, to put character back into the property. The project has extended into the garden too, with the cottage's exterior completely re-landscaped and a new driveway added. She has dealt with de-listing a property as well as handling land disputes and was previously based in London.
