She does the design; he handles space planning as Uptown couple manages their own major renovation | Home/Garden

When Margaret and Reese Williamson bought their Uptown camelback shotgun in 2016, they knew it was a fixer-upper. The couple, a florist and a tax attorney, respectively, appreciated the price tag and creative control the project afforded them.

They flipped the home’s floor plan, moving the kitchen from the rear to the front of the house and removing walls and a crumbling brick chimney to create an open living area. Soaked in natural light that bounces from floor-to-ceiling windows to a crystal glassware-topped bar cart, the space feels party-ready yet serene. In the rear of the house, by the stairs, a navy-hued den serves as a cozy retreat and place to watch movies.

The end result is exactly what the couple envisioned, but they weren’t prepared for how extensive the renovations would be. The century-old, multigenerational home had been subject to DIY additions and repairs over the years that weren’t up to code, including a hallway less than 2 feet wide.

Prince William and Kate Middleton are currently living in their countryside home Anmer Hall in Norfolk along with their three children — Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis. The Duke and the Duchess of Cambridge recently got on a video chat for a virtual engagement and gave their followers a rare peek into their country home.

The Cambridge family returned to their country home when the third wave of COVID-19 struck the U.K. The couple had moved to their official residence, Kensington Palace, briefly after the lockdown restrictions were eased out in the summers.

However, as the U.K. went into another lockdown, the royals were forced to decamp their London home and move back to their 18th-century Georgian country house that is part of Queen Elizabeth II’s Sandringham Estate.

Prince William and Kate got on a video call with the members of bereavement support service Just “B” “who provide a listening ear for those coping with the loss of colleagues, loved ones, and people they

Tiny house, big living: Couple share an inside look at the small home they built on a trailer

A couple from New Zealand with a passion for simple, sustainable living has shared an inside look at their tiny home built on the back of a trailer.

Despite having no construction or design experience, Lilah and Ollie Ward, 29 and 30, started planning their ultimate tiny build in September 2019.

‘It’s been Ollie’s dream to live in a tiny home for many years, and when we met in 2017 I became obsessed with the concept too,’ Lilah told FEMAIL.

‘We love the simple lifestyle it provides, not having a lot of ‘stuff’ and it’s easy to keep clean.’

The petite home is built on a custom designed 8.4m trailer from Wee Make Change and is approximately 3m wide and 4.1m high.
