This was actually the last project we completed for Meera. It all started with a master bathroom renovation (see below) but it turned out to be a very big project indeed. In total we carried out the following projects: master bathroom renovation, cloakroom re-design, major kitchen renovation, garage conversion, en-suite renovation and many other smaller jobs in between the main projects.
On this project we converted part of a single garage into a studio for Meera. The other part was kept for normal use.
All projects involved the following specialist and skills: builders, bricklayers, insulation specialist, air conditioning specialists, glazing specialists, kitchen and bathroom designer, kitchen fitter, bathroom installer, under-floor heating specialist, carpenter, tiler, plumber, plasterer, electrician, furniture designer and furniture installer, painter and decorator services. They were completed in 2016.
Meera contacted us via our website Contact Us form. She had just bought the house and wanted a fair amount of work carried out. Having received three quotes for the required work that originally included a master bathroom, bedroom and cloakroom renovation we ended up being the most expensive; her reason for choosing us is her own words was: “You advised me on a lot things offering different, more cost effective solutions whereas other builders just took a note on what I wanted. You seemed to be very knowledgeable in what you do and I do not mind paying extra to make sure I get a proper job and a good service.”
In this project we had to strip everything back in the bathroom as we normally do, including the ceiling. We supplied and installed an in-wall shower, P-shape bath and LED lights. We also advised the customer on anti-slip floor tiles taking into consideration two small children in the house. Everything was installed and the room was fully tiled, incorporating feature tiles on the wall.
Meera has agreed to provide us with her video feedback on our original project but she left another video feedback (see below) after we have completed her kitchen.
The cloakroom had one major challenge – located in the middle of the house we had to find a way to provide mechanical extraction to the outside and that we have done. We also re-built the under-stairs cupboard, introducing lights and shelving there.
Renovating the kitchen was a big project. There were so many aspects to the work that it was not a simple kitchen renovation. Our work included the following:
- replacing and moving the fuse board
- replacing the back door
- moving drainage
- creating provisions for a future garage conversion
- new electrics including under-floor heating
- moving the boiler to a nearside wall to accommodate the new kitchen layout
- floor levelling, plastering, painting
- kitchen design, supply and fitting including quartz worktops
The original kitchen looked OK on the photos but was actually in a poor state. When Meera moved into the house and started using the kitchen she noticed many things that were either fixed in a hurry or had never been finished after the original installation. She particularly disliked the sink in the middle of the room. Meera told us she wanted a completely different kitchen – and that’s what we gave her. She was very happy with our work.
