A couple who have turned a former bank into a beautiful family home join BBC One’s home to follow up on a major reconstruction with the BBC One’s Home Under Hammer.
Graham and Sally became the owners of a former bank in Nottinghamshire, Lancashire, after winning an auction of 142,000 properties.
Sally, who works as a staff nurse, and Graham, who works for a local construction company, revealed that they are “moving to the past and looking at the former bank and thinking.” It will make a good home. “
The building, which was to go under the hammer with a guide price of 000 90,000, is a former bank and will remain in place for five years. One lease remains.
Building owners receive an annual payment of 2,000, but must be allowed access to the interior to empty and fill the machine.
At the beginning of the show, viewers heard how artist LS Lowry loved visiting the Nut End to paint, as the status quo features 1968 Match Stick Men’s hit pictures. لنکسلائیو Reports
Later in the program, presenter Martell Maxwell was introduced to the village of Note End and described how it was “in search of property gold”.
“The cash machine will definitely be a big inconvenience if you decide to move it,” Maxwell said.

The viewer is then shown the rest of the inside, which shows “amazing” stairs, described as a “standout feature.”
The offer added, “That way you have a kind of commercial and cool feel to the parts, but then you have a little detail that I always want to keep and keep.”
One of the rooms in the building has a huge safe that can be “difficult to remove” given that it “fills the room” as well as many other safe.
Maxwell couldn’t resist the urge to peek inside.
“Getting rid of these safeguards would be a huge task, requiring the expertise of professional safe installation engineers with expert lifting gear,” he said, leaving a safe place.
The audience above saw the bank manager’s flat, which has a master bedroom with “great size” and another bedroom.
Original floorboards have been unveiled, with Maxwell saying “can be restored and made very good”.
The bedroom has “amazing views over Morkembe Bay” and the property also has “nicely sized gardens from the back”.
This property creates extremely fast and sunny weather, with wind turbines on the roof and solar panels providing a source of energy.
Viewers then saw the flashbacks when the property went to auction in December 2017, where a three-way battle over bidding was brewing. The winning bid of 14 142,000 came from “local couple Graham and Sally”.
The couple has revealed that they have converted the former bank into a family home and built three bathrooms and hope that the safes can be removed without putting up walls.
When asked about the revolving noise made by ATM Sally, he said: “We are hoping to get used to it and maybe report it in a few weeks. Will not be found. “
The couple revealed that access to the cash machine would be provided through the back door, so filling it did not include opening their home.
With a budget of 35 35,000 for the work, which they estimate will take a year, the couple used local businesses to complete the project.
When the cameras returned 13 months later, the pair’s transition was far from complete, but he explained that they had “spent eight months planning” to secure the change of use.
He also said that they have managed to remove the safes without having to spend 000 5,000 on experts by removing large sections and throwing scaffolding under small safes out of the doors.
Presenter Maxwell said at the end of the class, “After 13 months of hard Graft Graham and Sally were on their way to building their dream home.”
In 2020, viewers returned to the former bank and, preparing to join the couple, revealed that they had “blown” a budget of 35 35,000 and spent 60 60,000, bringing their total expenses to 2 202,000. Came to the dollar.
Estate agents visited the home and it was valued at between £ 300,000 and £ 325,000.
“It’s been a long journey, but it’s finally home,” Maxwell said.
The couple revealed that they are excited to enter.
“We always felt good about the place,” says Sally.
“We hoped it would be a good home and I think it should be now.”
