Visit our educational Renovation House

A tour of the Renovation House is a must. Using our audio tour, you can find out exactly how to go about bringing an old property back to life whilst learning about the problems you might encounter and getting top tips on how to make your own project a success.

Our unique Renovation House is built to replicate a typical property built in the inter-war years and has clearly had very little maintenance work or modernisation work done to it. As a result, just about everything needs work to bring it up to standard. As you move through the house, you will be guided through identifying and resolving most of the common problems encountered during a renovation project from failing brickwork, dry rot through to a leaky roof. Using the advice of specialist surveyors, builders and other tradesmen, you can see the original dilapidated house magically transform into a modern and up-to-date home with added space from basement and attic conversions.
