How to create successful householder engagement with a little joined up thinking.

Before applying the costly and complex interventions, build your skills and understanding with the no-cost and low-cost interventions that make successful home improvements. From changing a tap washer to how and why to hang wallpaper.

Informed occupant behaviour, successful draught-proofing, strategic insulating and mitigated damp remediation. Understanding the building principles, designing more than an aesthetic, putting together a project plan, a realistic schedule and building a team.

Achievable projects structured with strategies, principles and tools to help get things done.
