We moved house at end of March and have achieved the right location and improved space upstairs but everything else feels disappointing. The house seems solid enough but it has been lived in for 12 years and is ready for full refurb right through. Additionally, the ground floor does not have adequate living space for a family of four and lacks flow. We have come from a light, open plan family space to a small kitchen, tiny utility and tiny dining room and I am sure an architect could help us with the overwhelming task ahead but we only have a modest budget... Any guidance out there???
