Many of us have simultaneously endured and loved the process of renovating a home, but very few have taken on a challenge like the @manwithahammer.
Here, we chat to Greg about his amazing journey restoring an extraordinary Georgian property by the sea and find out why he chose Windsor column radiators to suit his eclectic style.
“My name’s Greg, aka @manwithahammer on Instagram and a year ago I got the keys to what I hope is my forever home, an 1804 ex-Naval Georgian townhouse. With 5 floors and around 30 rooms it’s going to be a real labour of love across many years as I do the vast majority of work myself around a full time job.”
What advice would you give to someone starting a similar project?
“Don’t be afraid to have a go. It’s amazing what you can achieve when you throw yourself into it. Most of it isn’t technically that tricky, but it can be very, very hard work. Physically and mentally exhausting and scary at times especially when you’ve a tight budget as I am but, it remains the most satisfying thing I’ve ever done!”
