About Me i’m sophie luis-madsen, 33, and i live with my husband, tom, 33.
My home A three-bedroom 1940s semidetached in hoddesdon, hertfordshire.
When I bought It it had been untouched for many years and had no central heating, no kitchen to speak of, a very basic bathroom, crumbling windows, swirly carpet and a jungle of a garden.
And now two small rooms have been turned into a kitchen-diner and a modern bathroom has been added, while every room has been renovated sympathetically to the period of the house.
Style tip if your floorboards are sound but you don’t like the colour, why not change the look with a stain, which is much cheaper than replacing them.
