to ensure we were always working to the right depth and
height. Against all the odds, steps soon started appearing.
There was now just the matter of the angles to work out.
Fearing we wouldn't find a protractor set big enough,
we turned to the next best thing - a big stick, some string
and sticky tape. It may not have been the most technical
or specialised approach, but it did the trick.
And finally, two dozen months after we started, we arrived
at the biggest milestone of the project: achieving agreement
that the loft and staircase - the first my hubby had turned
his hand to building - complied with building regulations
and were able to be signed off by the planning authorities.
We succeeded, and finding out that we were now the
proud owners of a three-bedroom, three-bathroom home
was priceless. It more than validated the two long years
of work and effort that we'd put into the project.

electrical elements - everything was thoroughly researched
before cash was handed over.
If you're looking to keep your spend to a minimum, having
the patience and drive to do this is key. Not only will research
contribute to delivering your project on budget but it will also
give you the exact look you crave.
When it came to décor for the loft, in all honesty it wasn't
something we had actually planned. As with the rest of
our house, it evolved over time and quite eclectically. It just
so happened that the build and my spare time coincided.
While Jem was sawing and sanding, I was picking out
cushions and mirrors, constructing a picture in my head
of how I could make this unusual yet beautiful space shine.
And after weeks of hard graft, after the final push, shine the loft
did. We both keep popping up there for a stolen five minutes just
to admire it and, since it has the only bath in the house, we also
have an excuse to linger in this brilliantly awkward yet utterly
worthwhile space we're lucky enough to have created.

Throughout the process, as with all things that you spend
time on which you truly care about, we both got mildly
obsessed with certain elements. For Jem,

QUALITY AND VALUE
Carrying an ever-increasing bump, for me
practical work was becoming less of an
option - much to my grievance.
It did give me the time to indulge my
fixation with tracking down the very best
- be it the product itself or the price.
Being somewhat relegated to the subs
bench when it came to practical labour, my
love of research came into its own.
From cupboard handles, door knobs and
screws to lamps and soft furnishings; from
