Hands on approach

Dan and Miriam Nethercott have modernised their 19th-century home with a new extension and by reconfiguring the traditional layout

Dan and Miriam Nethercott had already made significant improvements to their 19th-century terraced house in Manchester when they decided to tackle an extension scheme to boost the size of the property. “We bought our home 11 years ago and did a loft conversion four years later,” says Dan. “I’ve made changes to the bathrooms, but constructing an addition at the rear of the house was a far bigger project.” Adding more space was at the top of the Nethercotts’ priority list. “It was all about making a better home for us and our growing children – nothing to do with increasing the property’s market value,” he says.

Originally from Wiltshire, Dan made the move up to the north west, where Miriam is from. “Her family home is only a couple of streets away from here, and the location suits me fine,” he says. “I’m an NHS consultant in anaesthesia and intensive care, and Miriam is a trading standards officer with the local authority. Hospital work is the same all over the country, so relocating to this area didn’t really make a diff erence to me.”

’’I enjoyed the personal involvement and the pride that comes with knowing what I’ve achieved ‘‘
