How To Renovate – Walking Workshop

Learn how to make your renovation or home makeover unique, bespoke and exciting, on a budget : BOOK HERE

Summer 2018 sees the launch of one the most unique and exciting home renovation tour and learning days in the UK. Hosted through the brilliant Airbnb Experience platform (never head of it? Have a look here) home renovators, self builders and property whirlwinds Sian and Martin host a four hour experience at their project in Manchester, complete with tour, Q&A, expert advice and delicious lunch.

The Experience will continue when the property is complete but at the moment guests have a unique opportunity to see an ambitious project 70% completed inside and out, seeing the nuts and bolts of a renovation, how things fit together, what works and what doesn’t and how self builds / renovations comes together.


Sian is a property & interiors expert with 22yrs experience, full of bold and innovative ideas often implemented for her own and client schemes on a budget. She’s had her own show on Channel 5 “Half Built House” and was one of the BBC’s “Getting The Builders In” for Autumn 2017. With expertise covering everything from damp proofing to upholstery and wallpapering to kitchen layouts, she’s run a specialist building company and self manages 17 rental properties. Bring your property questions, plans and conundrums along!

Martin, aka Mr Moregeous, is Si’s right hand man. 30yrs a fireman with 16yrs  immersed in property, he’s the man who can, and does. As everyone on social media knows, he’s nothing short of a machine.


Interior design ideas abound inside, with amazing tips on creating storage, personalising your home, sourcing unique buys, making trends your own and not following the herd.2018-06-28_0005.jpgThe nuts and bolts are covered here too. Everything from putting in steels to clever framework, reclaiming materials and reusing salvage, future proof insulating to what you should do yourself, and what you should avoid. And, how to live with no hot water or heating for a year. Without killing each other. MM Collage grim.jpgGarden questions like pollinator friendly planting, personalising your outdoor space, how to design seating areas, creating the ultimate terrace, what paints to use and nailing exterior design on a budget, are all here at Moregeous Mansions.2018-06-28_0004.jpgWhere?
