Doing the WE LOOK AT HOW SARAH BEENY’S NEW SHOW INSPIRED TWO FAMILIES TO TURN THEIR HOUSES INTO DREAM HOMES double L ast year saw property guru Sarah Beeny return to television screens with two new shows: Selling Houses and Double Your House For Half The Money. The latter struck a chord with homeowners who wanted to keep their borrowings down but live in a dream house. This is why Sarah helped 12 of them to achieve their dream – to transform a much lesser house into their perfect home by creating much more space, but only spending half the money it would have cost them to buy their dream home. It turns out that the participants aren’t the only ones making changes: a survey by BEFORE showed that people in the UK plan to spend an average of £4,000 on home improvements in the next year. With this property-improvement idea in mind, we caught up with two families from Double Your House… to ask them about their experiences. 042 | APRIL 2013 42-44 Double your houseFINAL.indd 42 4/3/13 18:27:49
