Woman With 'Ugliest House On The Street' Transforms It Into Unrecognisable Home
A mum has shared pictures of her house renovation after neighbours dubbed it the 'ugliest house on the street'.
Joanne Lewis from Kent bought the 'upside down' two-bedroom house and three years on they're getting ready to sell it after a complete revamp and a kitchen extension.
Alongside her partner, the mum-of-two moved the kitchen and living space that was originally upstairs on to the ground floor and extended the kitchen into the back garden.
The sensible layout meant the upstairs could be turned into bedrooms and then they went up another level - making the house four-bed.
Sharing the process on Instagram, Joanne wrote on her home renovation Instagram @homesideofstyle: "We changed the windows in the living room, from rectangle to square.
"The house itself was square so we worked with what we had keeping the theme of the house square but modern.

"After all, this is a stepping stone to our forever home. So working with what we had was key.
"Upstairs was the kitchen and lounge. We created a hallway which would lead into one master bedroom, a second bedroom and a shower room."
The house now proudly boasts four bedrooms, two bathrooms, two balconies and stunning sea views.
Joanne went on: "The house was rendered. Wood added to balcony areas. Intended to paint the wood black but still unsure.
"Aluminium fascia was added to the roof and under balconies. Paving on the driveway completed. Electricity box is still to be covered with wood that matches the house."
Speaking to Tyla about the timescale, Joanne said: "The renovation was done in two stages, we didn't have enough money to do it all in one go. It began in 2017 when the kitchen extension was complete, allowing us to move in.
"Then in 2018 the third floor was added and we lived and brought a newborn home whilst it began."
