Billie Faiers checks on progress at her £1.4m dream Essex home – Daily Mail

They bought the site of their dream home nearly two years ago.

And on Wednesday Billie Faiers arrived to check on progress on her Brentwood, Essex mansion, a year after builders first started renovating the 1920s property.

The Mummy Diaries star, 31, was spotted inspecting the top floor of the sprawling mansion, while a team of builders continued working.

Dressed down in sweats and carrying a notepad, the mum of two carefully made her way out of the front door and along the unpaved drive to her car.

The grounds of the vast mansion have yet to be landscaped, while tiling work is still being carried out on the dug-out pool. Diggers are in the garden, excavating the dirt to prepare for the lawn to be laid.  

Only a small amount of scaffolding remains on the back of the house to allow the finishing touches to be applied to the white painted exterior walls.

Work began on the house in January 2021 following months of delays due to planning rows with their new neighbours.

Last year, Billie, 31, 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 2020 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.’

Massive project: The grounds of the mansion are strewn with debris while multiple builders’ vans are parked …….
