Andrew and Christine MacDonald have replaced a tired bungalow with a contemporary dream home, right next door to their existing property.
After living in their family home for 25 years, Andrew and Christine started to think about moving to a more managable, smaller property, but hadn't yet considered building their own home. This was until the bungalow next door came up for sale which proved to be the perfect opportunity.
"Our children had left home and we realised we no longer needed a five bedroom house anymore, so when the house next door went on the market for £400,000, I initially couldn't see the financial benefits of building on the plot, however it was Christine who convinced me that it would be a good idea, so that made me look past the money." Explains Andrew.
