Penny and Douglas moved into their house in the West Midlands in 2002, and over the next decade, conducted a series of alterations to improve their living space.

By 2012 they had turned the garage into a home office, utility and WC; reorganised the first floor space to provide an en suite to the master bedroom; then converted the loft to make room for a double bedroom with en suite shower room.
