Couple spend so much on improvements it would have been cheaper to buy a new house

A COUPLE have opted to spend tens of thousands of pounds on home improvements instead of just buying a new f**king house. 

Sophie and Martin Bishop have spent around £200,000 completely transforming their three-bed semi into a three-bed semi that is a bit more trendy. 

Neighbour Tom Booker said: “We’ve had to put up with bloody annoying building work for more than a year while they replaced every single part of the house.  

“They could have bought two houses for the money they’ve spent on it. Or they could have taken all the new bricks, doors and windows and just built a new house with them.” 

Sophie said: “As soon as we saw this place we knew it was our dream house. Well, it would be once we’d ripped everything out and made it totally unrecognisable.

“We’re horribly in debt and it’s been 18 months of stress, but it’s worth it to have slightly differently shaped sinks.”
