Channel 4: 4Homes

From 2008 until 2012, I was the Senior Writer for Channel 4’s 4Homes website, writing supporting content for programmes like Grand Designs, Location Location Location and Property Ladder.

I wrote articles on subjects as diverse as Energy Performance Certificates, allotments, landlord regulations, and capital gains tax, as well as more lighthearted features on the latest interior design trends, instructional craft guides, and a wealth of DIY advice for homeowners.

I especially enjoyed channelling Kirstie Allsopp to write step-by-step craft guides to accompany the programme Kirstie’s Homemade Home.

Sadly, the 4Homes site was decommissioned in 2012 and most of the content was removed from the Channel 4 website a few years later. However, you can click the thumbnails below to view a selection of screenshots in jpg format. Most of these articles were written under my maiden name, Emma Jones, or ghostwritten on behalf of Kirstie Allsopp.
