Jules and Steve thought their dream had come true when they were granted planning permission to build their house on an old orchard in Rugby, Warwickshire.

The couple were granted planning permission for a dormer bungalow — a bungalow with an upstairs floor with windows that protrude vertically from the roof. The plans also included an entrance hall with reception rooms, a 7m by 7m kitchen with bifold doors, and the rather fantastic addition of a cinema room too.
