We don’t often run projects in parallel unless it works for all concerned but we’ve found ourselves doing just that recently with separate bathroom and kitchen projects, both of which have challenged our abilities but both yielding positive progress and excellent feedback from our two separate clients.
The bathroom is one of two in the property so not crucial to everyday life and the kitchen is being located in a new room so the existing kitchen can be used while the work is undertaken.
The bathroom involves removing a bath and replacing it with a large shower cubicle, which can be very challenging in a dorma bathroom due to ceiling heights, a new sink and WC with new floor & wall tiling and redecoration.
It’s progressing steadily and is nearing completion and we’re sure it’ll produce another happy client.
The kitchen has literally involved taking the room in this 17th century character cottage right back to the fabric of the building in order to tackle the initial tasks including:
- Installing new electrical sockets
- Installing new ceiling
- Installing new downlights in ceiling
- Concealing pipe work under floor
- Plastering ceiling and some walls to leave some exposed brickwork to maintain the character of this cottage.
- Installing Karndean flooring
- Painting ceiling and walls
- Installing kitchen cabinets and worktops
We’re moving into the final stages of the project now and are just a few steps away from completing this very challenging but interesting project. Things we have left include:
- Installation of an Everhot 60 cooker
- Installation of final few cabinets
- Installation of handles and trims
- Completion of wall painting in Farrow & Ball Wimborne White
- Tiling of splashbacks
- Installation of bespoke electrical sockets and switches
- Installation of new victorian style column radiator
- Oiling of all wooden surfaces
