The couple - who are parents to Mila, four, and two-year-old Penny - took two years to transform the bungalow, turning it into a completely different space thanks to bargains on Facebook marketplace, including a brand new bath that originally cost £600 only costing them £60.

"The house is quite unique - we've gone with a dark theme with natural wood and lots of plants but I love it," Jaime said.

"We did all of the work ourselves apart from the knocking down the house and building the roof. We've spent a lot of time doing this up and making it into our perfect home."

But this is their first large-scale renovation project - and Jaime was pregnant with Penny when they started.

The mum added: "The bungalow was being used as a rental property prior to being sold but we knew we were going to completely knock it down and start again - the windows were made of wood which had rotted, it was very cold, there were a lot of narrow corridors and tiny rooms.

"This is our fourth renovation but definitely the biggest - we'll probably stay here until the children have finished school as it's our dream home and it's in a really desired area.

"We moved in in December 2017 and it didn't have electrics or gas - I was seven months pregnant at the time but it was just about liveable.

"The renovation so far has cost us about £60,000 but we're going to add another extension so that we can have a completely separate kitchen and study area."

This looks absolutely amazing!
