Bespoke bench

We were asked to design, supply, build and install a bespoke bench seat for a clients dining area. The seat would need to be installed over the existing radiator and be primarily used for their children to sit at whilst eating at the dining table. We consulted with our clients and they liked the idea [...]

Cat flap

Our client had recently acquired a new feline friend who had settled in but had no access to the garden. The only door to the garden was a sliding UPVC unit so without replacing the whole double glazed panel we could not fit a cat flap here. Instead there was luckily enough space the brickwork [...]

Security light

Our client called us explaining that their LED security light had stopped working. We inspected the unit and found that the built-in PIR sensor had failed causing the light to stop working at all times. We advised our client that it would be more cost effective to fit a new PIR sensor rather than replace [...]

Kitchen renovation

The owner of this property has decided to put it up for sale and it needed quite a lot to bring it up to a saleable standard. Most notably the kitchen was tired and out-of-date with beech doors, worn paint, old fittings and water damage. We stripped the kitchen down and replaced cupboards with new [...]

Garden Clear-up

Our clients garden had been left unattended too for some time. The beds had overgrown, the lawn was 18in tall and weeds had completely covered the large gravel-covered areas. We worked hard to bring the garden back; stripping out the weeds and mowing the lawn. We now have to tackle the fencing and remove the [...]

Loft Ladder

Our client had an old, small hatch in to their loft area which was difficult to access and restricted what items could be stored in the loft space. The loft had been insulated and lined with boards so was a potentially valuable space. We removed the old hatch and the frame and cut the ceiling [...]

Roof felting

The roof of this summer house was leaking badly due to large areas of missing roof felt and roof timbers out of place. We repaired the roof timbers first and strengthened the frame where necessary, then applied a complete new covering of quality black felt. The finished result not only looks smart but will last [...]

Kitchen floor tiling

This student property was undergoing renovation and the kitchen was completely re-fitted. The no-expense-spared Magnet kitchen deserved a quality floor, so we laid 450mm square, 8mm thick ceramic tiles. The poured concrete floor was quite uneven in places but we overcame this with careful planning and skilled handy work. The finished result looked very smart [...]

Vinyl bathroom flooring

This student property had new bathroom suites installed and were freshly decorated, the finished touch was a new floor covering. We were contracted to install this quality wood-effect vinyl covering. As the white goods had already been installed in all three bathrooms, we had to work around them taking our time to measure thrice and [...]

Kitchen splash-back tiling

This newly fitted Magnet kitchen was never going to look it's best until we tiled skillfully tiled the splashback area. Using gloss white 'brick' tiles we carefully filled in these areas, cutting around the cupboards and window reliefs before grouting and finishing with trim. The result is stunning and makes this kitchen look a million [...]
