Improve rather than move!

The cost of moving house has soared in the past few years- from estate agent fees to stamp duty to legal fees, the average cost of moving house is now estimated to be over £10,000 (Zoopla, 2014). According to the Financial Times, 94% of UK home owners would rather improve their current home than move to a new one. Home improvements will add value to your house- with the garden and driveway being two of the simplest ways to do this.

Off street parking can add up to 8% to your property’s value and can bring down the cost of your car insurance, not to mention being more convenient! The pictures below from our latest project show that the driveway is not just a place to park your car- the block paving is complimented by planted gravel beds, and the new brick wall blends perfectly with the house!
