Extreme patience has paid dividends for London-based Joe Radmore. He’s completed his first conversion project on the slenderest of budgets.

The saga began in 2009 when Joe, then young and single, bought a three-acre site in Devon near his childhood home for just £40,000, with planning permission in place to build a barn.
