Ruth Shepherd's Mid terrace 1880s was cold and draughty before she decided she wanted to make home improvements. She'd lived in the house 10 years before making major changes in 2013. During the 5 years before, She had had double glazing and composite front and back doors installed. The cavity wall in the 1970s bathroom extension had also been done then. It was looking over the Eco house at Miles Platting and then visiting SuperHome owner Eric Fewster (see Hersey St, Salford) that made her determined get her house revamped. The work was carried out by Eric (www.ColdProof.co.uk) and Bob Hope of Expert Home Extensions (www.experthomeextensions.co.uk).
