Family converts garage into living room

When the Bornman family decided their rented two up two down house in St Neots was too small for their needs they felt they couldn't afford to buy a bigger house.

So they bought a nearby garage instead - which they're now using as an extra living room.

Lindy made a cardboard chandelier to give the place a hint of sophistication. They've also put up a painting. And the table and chairs complete the look.

The couple say whilst they are very happy with their purchase contrary to some reports they have no plans to buy up more garages, knock down some walls and extend.
