BBC DIY SOS – The House Crowd Gets Involved

Those of you familiar with the BBC DIY SOS series will possibly be aware of the new episode that is coming soon featuring a few streets in Manchester that required their crack teams’ TLC.

What you may not realise is that the street is, in fact, one that THC have already waved their magic wand over in the past!

Canada Street Refurb

Canada Street is in a part of East Manchester to which we were attracted, for the quality houses which just required some refurbishment and would make excellent homes for families in the area.

Clearly, we were one step ahead of the crowd as Nick Knowles and the team, along with Princes William and Harry, started a two-week project to convert the street into homes for army veterans.

The project has really improved the area and the properties will become much-needed homes for the ex-servicemen and their families.

The House Crowd were also happy to get involved by sending some of our own builders to site to assist in this major refurbishment project.

The show will be aired on the BBC in England at 8pm 14th October 2015

You can see before and after pictures of Canada Street and the houses for HCP066 and HCP112 by searching back through our archives.

Update: This article was written in 2015, when The House Crowd was already high on the radar of investors looking for a piece of the property market pie! Since then, we have continued to go from strength to strength, offering people from all walks of life the opportunity to get a leg up on the property ladder and invest in property in a way that would never have been open to them in the past. We are proud of all that we have achieved so far, and we are (not so) quietly confident that we will continue doing great things for investors, and the property market in general, for long into the future.
