"Thank heavens for Julie Bliss!

I was wondering where on earth to start with the complete refurb of my new (to me) 1950s bungalow and making a horrible but huge garage into a fabulous studio.

Julie came to my rescue, worked out what to put where and came up with lots of marvellous ideas for the whole project.

She was unstintingly helpful throughout, saw everything through planning and was always on hand for advice and guidance throughout the project. I would not have the marvellous home and studio that I now have were it not for her.

We had a laugh as well. I really, really recommend her."
