Zoe and Ben Murphy felt like they had travelled back in time when they first went to view their 19th-century house in Melbourne, Australia.

The owner of the property had lived there for the last 70 years, ‘and it looked as though he hadn’t made any improvements since moving in,’ says Zoe. ‘There was one bathroom and an outside loo,’ she adds. ‘All of which meant a massive amount of work was required to turn it back into a single home.’

JOBS too soon?

«The ones who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do.»
