It’s been a strange 12 months, with many of us stuck indoors and the way we see and use our homes changing forever. In this new series, Kirstie and Phil look back at their most brilliant builds and deliver countless tips and tricks to help you maximise the spend on your precious bricks and mortar. As well as catching up with favourite families, Kirstie and Phil reveal some of the famous Love It or List It methodology when it comes to tackling that life-changing build: focusing on the layout issues and dilemmas that many of us now face in a very different world. This episode is all about future-proofing, as two families at very different stages of their lives tackle tricky renovations in a last-ditch attempt to make their homes work for the long term. In Clifford in Yorkshire, Vic and Paul Miller need help with their idyllic property. The arrival of their twins, Raphael and Grace, three years ago has accentuated the serious problems with the layout and Vic has had enough. She longs for a house with more bedrooms for the kids and more space for her parents to stay, so they can ditch the caravan when they visit from Southport. Will Kirstie’s clever plan solve their woes? Also in need of help are the Lindleys from Ashtead in Surrey. Having built up a business empire from home, cyber security expert Bill has inadvertently taken over their detached chalet bungalow, turning it into his own personal control centre. But retired civil servant Pippa has had enough of their ‘tatty little bungalow’. Will Kirstie’s reconfiguration help Pippa to fall back in love with her house? And what happened after their life-changing decision of whether to love it or list it?
