A garage located on in a brownfield area with a size of just a 67m2 is being turned into a home in East London.

The planned home in Walthamstow has been designed to limit the impact to neighbouring homes and improve the look of the area by replacing the dilapidated garage with a design, which is in-keeping with the area.
