What you'll do
The UK’s only walking workshop, designed to help home renovators, inspire those stuck in an interior design rut, prod property developers to make braver choices or just excite the house nosey. A unique opportunity to get an in depth house tour looking at the nuts and bolts of an almost complete ambitious renovation / self build. There are innovative design ideas, cost effective styling, upcycled & salvaged purchases. What to DIY and what to leave to experts. Get the low down on how your ideas might turn out should you attempt them and the tips to create a successful interior. Learn how to renovate affordably, how to cleverly source & buy, & add specialist design touches. There's also future proofing with underfloor heating and insulation. See how to mix traditional style with a contemporary edge to bring your home into 2018, whilst respecting original features. Finally enjoy a delicious lunch, followed by a Q&A session should guests wish to discuss their own projects. Please do bring plans or photos if you think it'll help you communicate your interior conundrums :) Worth the investment? Much more than a house tour, just read our reviews so far!
Sian & Martin
I'm a 22yrs-experienced property renovator, lady builder & interior designer, and am hugely excited to share my passion & expertise to help answer all your home & garden questions. Nationally recognised as an expert on TV and online, I frequently work with clients and businesses on renovations and redesigns, but wanted to create a new & affordable way for homeowners to get inspiration and accessible information, without necessarily employing a designer/consultant. This unique Airbnb Experience is a perfect way for the house mad to become the house savvy, and have a lovely lunch & day out!

Where you'll be
This event is hosted at our home, an ambitious renovation and self build which we started four years ago. Unique in design both externally and internally, it's an ongoing project which is about 70% finished, so you'll see not only superbly finished rooms but also works in progress. Ideal for wannabe renovators or self builders, home owners passionate about interior design, first time buyers facing first time challenges or just the home obsessed!
Things to keep in mind
Any experience can be cancelled and fully refunded within 24 hours of purchase.
Always communicate through Airbnb. To protect your payment, never transfer money or communicate outside the Airbnb website or app.
Up to 10 guests aged 18 and up can attend.
You’ll need to take a picture of yourself that matches the photo on your ID. This is so Airbnb can confirm who’s actually going on the experience. You’ll only have to do this once.
Don't worry we don't live on a building site so normal shoes & clothing are fine! Bring an iPad or Laptop with your own house queries if you have a DIY question we can help with.
