Could you tell us any interesting facts or remarkable features about your project?
The house was originally built in 1929 and formed part of the estate that was coupled with Westlecot Manor opposite our house. We had some good fortune in that we were c.5 houses away from the Conservation Area therefore saved some complications. We’re also in the bottom or a quarry where we had bedrock close to the surface.
Dave & Kellie’s Experience at the National Self Build & Renovation Centre
How many times have you visited The National Self Build and Renovation Centre before? Around 8-10 times.
What did you enjoy most about your visit to the NSBRC? Both the NSBRC staff and the exhibitors were extremely helpful - each time we returned we were able to complete another piece to the puzzle.
Would you recommend the NSBRC to a friend, and if so, what aspects of the Centre would you recommend and why? For us, this was our first attempt at anything like this. We had some help in that a close family friend is a property developer and actually lives at Westlecot Manor that I mention earlier, so they were able to help direct us in many respects.
