  1. Hey there

    Great blog! I am currently working with a number of home improvement clients on building their web presence. I was wondering if there would be a chance that I could get them included in a blog post on your blog?! We have a team of in house journalists here that I can get to supply you with the article (if I ask super nicely!) and in return, you could provide a link to them?

    I look forward to hearing from you soon!

    Keep up the blogging!!


  2. Hey Sian, it’s Gabriella, we met at the Jessie Rose Trip gig.

    I was so overwhelmed by your forward compliments that I honestly couldn’t wait to get home, whiz on my Mac and google your blog. I became even more thrilled when I read through your blog. Just… OMG. Everything you do or have done in the past from interior design, photography and TV presenting its exactly the sort of thing I want to do.
    I’m flattered that a person of your experience spoke to me, it really boost my confidence and has determined me to believe in myself more.

    So cheers m’dear, hope to hear back from you when you get the chance, you being a multi-tasking lady and god knows what else you do!

    Muchos Gracias.

  3. Hi Gabriella,
    Lovely to hear from you. Quite the reverse, it should be ME impressed with YOU. To be taking shots and looking so professional at last night’s gig, at your age, is phenomenal, super confident. I am looking forward to seeing some of the images you took, make sure you email me soon 🙂
    I felt proud to be a woman to watch you and Jessie Rose last night, her performing and you the photographer, both doing your stuff, fantastic!

    1. Hi Sian watched your prop ladder very impressed we think we will buy up north . Will be in touch if you still have your damp company

  4. Hi Sian

    Just seen you on Property Ladder. Very impressive. I like your styles.
    If you ever need any 3D visuals to see the finished property – interior or exterior before you start spending, give me a shout. My services can save developers a great deal of money and time.

    Kind Regards Nick

  5. Hi Sian, we have been exchanging tweets so i thought i’d drop by an say hi properly!

    Anyway, will no doubt tweet again….@tiletown

  7. Just been watching “How To Live With Women” on BBC iPlayer (good show by the way).

    Had to track you down as it was bugging me as I thought I’d seen you somewhere before and then I spotted it on here – Property Ladder!!

    The original is still on 4oD – “Property Ladder Revisted

    Enjoy 🙂

  8. Hi Sian, I came across you and John on BBC2 today. I am about to embark on building work, including making a doorway between two rooms, new kitchen, and garden landscaping. I have experienced ‘cowboy builders’ in the past and so wondered if you had any South Manchester recommendations. Thanks.

    1. Hi Paula, I’m sorry for the delay, I seem to have stopped getting notifications for comments!
      and I’ve been busy with work and haven’t checked! You can contact Jon at Bigg Hands if you google him x

  9. Hello I am about to buy a property but I would like to know how likely it would be to extend an upstairs box bedroom onto the flat roof it sits on – in your experience have you seen this done and would you need planning permission to do this?

    1. It all depends on what is below, who owns it, whether it can take the weight of a new construction, what it overlooks – lots of considerations! Maybe ask your local planning department? Good luck!
