Hello! It’s been as busy a year for me as ever, and I’ve spent a lot of my time renovating houses – other people’s in my latest Channel 4 show, Help! My House Is Falling Down, which aired this summer – and my own home in Yorkshire, Rise Hall.
Help! has been a big hit, down in no small part to the renewed interest people have in home improvements, however small or large the job in hand! Having said this, the housing market has remained relatively stable this year – I think it’s going to remain a little bumpy for the foreseeable future, but selling or buying a home is now an achievable prospect again.
Houses on my website www.tepilo.com are selling well – most get two or three viewings, they’re under offer and then sold. It’s really exciting! Back to my work at Rise Hall – it has 97 rooms so we’ve had a lot of renovation to do. You can see what a mammoth task we faced on Beeny’s Restoration Nightmare on Channel 4 in November. If you need to do some home maintenance, I hope it inspires you to get down to business.
