about number eight


We’re Louise and Mark and we’re sharing our journey as we make a house into a home.

Number Eight part one was about buying our first home together. It was a 100-year old Victorian terrace which had been somewhat unloved. We chronicled the process of making it into a beautiful, comfortable home.

Number Eight part two started in 2020 when we took the next step and bought a tiny 200-year old cottage in Norfolk. (Not in one of the expensive, trendy bits, but a beautiful village nonetheless.) We face a new round of challenges as we renovate a house in very bad repair and extend it to become a cosy but modern home.

Join us on our new adventures. I’ll put the kettle on.
