New lights

The original lights in this property were old and dated and the pendants on the first floor dirty and potentially unsafe. The client supplied new light units and we fitted them throughout including, on our recommendation, a new correctly rated bathroom light. Simple jobs like these can often become more difficult, for example the ceilings [...]

Enter the boudoir!

We ripped out the old, dated and tired wardrobes which had seen better times! In their place we built brand new units from IKEA with internal rails, drawers, baskets and external LED lighting. Finally we custom built a couple of shelves to bridge the two units together and create a make-up desk and useful shelf.

En-suite refurb

This clients en-suite was very dated and tired so we stripped everything out, back to the framework. We moved the toilet, shower and radiator to suit a new more efficient layout and fitted a brand new suite. New tiles, flooring, lighting, fittings and fixtures were added too, to the highest quality.

Dog friendly decking!

Our clients asked us to design and build a large decked area as their pooch didn't like the graveled garden. We worked through a series of designs with them before settling on the final version. The posts were concreted in and a strong structural frame constructed before we added the decking and cut to curve [...]

Greenhouse

A tired old greenhouse had potential but needed some serious love. We replaced all 107 panes including custom cutting the gable ends and door. Stripped all the moss and growth from the frame and laid a new slabbed floor in place of the old soil. Now this can be used to the max and should [...]

Jet-washed garden slabs

We spent a few hours of hard work bringing this garden back to life. Who knew those slabs were so nice underneath all that dirt!

Jet-washed drive

Our client had spent a few years working out of the country and on their return found their property needed a bit of TLC! We jet-washed all their exterior slabbed areas and driveway. The end result looked great and together with clean windows, cut grass and tended beds made the house feel like a home [...]

It has to go downhill!

Our client informed us some problems they were experiencing with some recently installed plumbing. Unfortunately the original fitters could no longer be contacted to rectify their work so we investigated the system. We found that not only did the soil pipe fail to flow downhill at the correct fall rate, but there was no access [...]

Disabled access ramp

A gentleman and his family contacted us to design and install a ramp suitable for his mobility scooter. The existing wooden ramp was too steep and very tired so we worked together to install a heavy duty system which could be removed if they move property. A non-slip surface and galvanised finish ensure this will [...]

Flat pack wardrobe

After purchasing an IKEA PAX double wardrobe system with sliding doors, our clients realised they didn't have the instructions! So we were called in and used our experience to put it all together, in record time!
