Workshopping ideas with the builder and her husband to ensure they maximised the space and utilised areas was crucial.
“I've been incredibly hands-on, I've made sure that I was here every day and just noticing things and challenging the builders and I guess ourselves and trying to see what we can improve on” tells Jules.
“For instance, we've got a garden bed upstairs” describes Jules, which was originally going to a rooftop. “I didn't like the idea of that. So I said, ‘Oh, I think it'd look really good as a garden bed.’
“The builder and my husband were both like, "Oh, I don't think that's possible." But I'd seen it done before… so we workshopped it and made it happen!”
“There were lots of different aspects in the home where we did that. And I think that's really important to do when you're building and creating your home.”
