Futuristic Smart Home
Jerry and Kimberley have been looking for their dream property for two years and have now finally found the perfect church in the perfect location in West Yorkshire.
They’ve sold their 5 bedroomed, family home and together with their two daughters, are living in a small cramped bungalow whilst the renovation and construction takes place – but this is taking its toll and Kimberley is fed up of sharing the bathroom with her teenage daughters!
However, turning this dusty, dirty, derelict building from the early 1900’s into a state of the art, modern, futuristic 21st century smart home is no easy undertaking especially as they are retaining original features as well as adding a contemporary two-storey extension to the church, more than doubling the footprint of the property.
The plan is to create a very modern smart hub where everything in the property - from the televisions and sound systems to heating, lighting and security cameras - will all be run from one laptop. This will be incredibly complicated not to mention costly -will Kimberley make the right design choices, will Jerry agree with them? Have they bitten off more than they can chew and will a year, their anticipated build time, realistically be long enough?
