Sometimes buildings get a second life, so Rachel Roberts decided at the age of 26 that she would try to turn an old building into a comfortable home.
The two-storey building, which once housed a police station, is located in the small village of Siset. According to data from 2001, 1324 people lived in the village, now this number is even less, but this did not scare Miss Roberts.
She paid around 180,000 pounds for the house. For several decades, the house she had chosen to transform has been empty. It was built in 1853 and was closed in 1969 due to the transfer of the police to another area.
It took a lot of effort just to clear the area of debris. Rachel planned every step of the renovation with her boyfriend, Mike, and got to work. They were able to design a pleasant interior, while maintaining the aesthetics of the space.
To do this, they left the beams under the ceiling and the wooden floor. Yes, and they didn’t touch the brick either.
Representatives of local television became interested in the unusual transformation of the two-storey police station.
Rachel and Michael were helped complete the work, and the film crew helped create a short story about their project. Now this creative solution in the English countryside is known all over the world.
