As an architectural designer, Emily is passionate about improving the spatial and thermal functions of homes, which she has now applied to retrofitting her own family home. In just 7 months, Emily and Shane’s standard 1930s terraced house has been transformed into a joyous, spacious, low energy home, boosting both comfort and quality of life – their whole family can now all enjoy watching the birds from the bright kitchen extension!
Emily says: “I am self-employed as an architectural designer. I am passionate about improving poorly functioning houses. I wanted to improve the thermal efficiency and comfort of the house while also improving the layout, and extending as much as possible. The improvement to our life has been huge. We now have a kitchen / dining space large enough to host friends, with a view onto our garden. We have enjoyed watching the birds this spring and the kids are more interested in what’s growing in the garden. The floor insulation has made a massive improvement to our lounge, and now we can’t wait to get the rest of the house up to the same standard!”
