I have used Finny Muers-Raby twice to help with the design of my holiday cottage.
On the first occasion, I wanted to add an extra bedroom but the option of creating this upstairs was out of the question financially. She came up with a design for converting the integrated garage into a utility area, shower room and downstairs bedroom. This has worked perfectly within an affordable budget. It also has the advantage of allowing me to offer facilities for elderly or disabled visitors.
Recently, I have been working to upgrade the appearance of the main sitting room, which has become rather tired and old-fashioned looking. In current economic conditions I could not afford to invest large sums on new furniture, which anyway would not suit a traditional country cottage. Finny completely redesigned the layout, using existing furniture, and only requiring the purchase of a couple of new chairs.
