Billie Faiers and Greg Shepherd’s vast home renovation takes shape

Renovations on Billie Faiers and her husband Greg Shepherd’s £1.4million are well and truly underway. 

New images show the extent of the work, which began in January following months of delays due to planning rows with their new neighbours at the incredible abode.

The framework of the renovation is fully in place, while the roof tiles are stacked ready for fitting atop the tarpaulin covered roof, while the vast garden remains unkempt amid the building work. 

Hard work: Renovations on Billie Faiers and her husband Greg Shepherd’s £1.4million are well and truly underway

Billie and Greg have closely documented the work on their home, including in scenes on The Mummy Diaries and on the dedicated Instagram page for the swanky renovation. 

The work appears to be taking shape for the stars, with builders and labourers hard at work on making sure they run to a tight schedule with the vast undertaking.  

Earlier this year, Billie admitted she’s not speaking to the neighbours at her new property in Brentwood, after they opposed the couple’s plans to demolish the original rundown house and replace it with a five-bed palace.

Bridges haven’t been built since they won planning permission in August last year with Billie saying: ‘We’ve not seen anyone. But it’s just not a great start, is it?’ She continued of the home, which was constructed in the 1920s: ‘The house is so old, whoever was going to buy it was going to have to renovate.

‘There’s only one neighbour to the side of us and he had a lot of reasons as to why he didn’t want us to go ahead, but it was getting a bit silly in the end. It’s been a very long journey already and it’s about to get even more pressurised once the builders start work.’

According to the planning application, all five bedrooms will be on the first floor with the en-suite master bedroom having a huge dressing room. Three of the other en-suite bedrooms will have walk-in wardrobes.

Greg, 35, has been allowed to add a ‘man cave’, converting the original garage into a gym and games room, and there will be a play room for their two children.

They’re also adding a two-storey side extension, single extensions to the front and rear, and completely re-landscaping the outside space.

Billie admitted in March that she wouldn’t have bought the abode if she knew the ‘headache’ it would be.

She said: ‘Now someone else has also said to us that we should probably think about knocking the house down and start all over again it’s just becoming one thing after another.

‘We’re nearly a year in now. It would have been nice to know that like six to eight months ago because if we are going to knock the house down it means we’re going to have to reapply for planning permission and start this process all over again.

‘I don’t regret buying the house but if I had known it would have taken this like, like over a year to get to find a builder, I probably wouldn’t have done it because I just was so unaware of how long things take.’
