This month, Homebuilding & Renovating celebrates 30 years of authoritative advice and shining inspiration for those undertaking self-builds and renovation projects. Our cover story investigates an absolutely sublime seafront home, and tells the story of how it evolved from a simple renovation scheme into a fully-fledged new build. We also explore an ambitious extension to an old gamekeeper’s cottage that cuts into the side of a nearby hill, and marvel at the masterful use of space that allowed an old, derelict garage to be transformed into fantastic modern home.
To mark are anniversary, we’ve picked out one of our favourite self-builds of the last three decades (you won’t believe it’s a new home), and asked long-time contributor and self-build expert David Snell to reflect on his time with the title. We also share 30 great new products and ideas to make your project perfect in 2020, as well as breaking down everything you need to know about how the Party Wall Act could affect your extension plans. On top of that there’s cutting edge technical advice, the start of a new series on building sustainably, and features on the best range cookers, solar thermal panels and hiring plasterers.
