As builders, we always enjoy the challenge of a new project and, even if we do lots of kitchen or bathroom refits which might sound similar, no two jobs are ever the same.
To turn that on its head, we recently carried out our first garage conversion, to make it a fully habitable and integral part of a house rather than an outside space. On the face of it, that might sound a challenge, but in fact we simply drew on several of the vast number of trades and skills we have at our disposal.
Faced with an empty shell of a garage at the location in Crawley Down, we needed to do plastering, both installing boards to the walls and ceiling and then plastering them to a finish so they could be decorated.
We also needed to knock through two walls, one internal and one external, leading to the back entrance and the hallway, plus source a UPVC and also an internal door.
We also put in new wall and base units with kitchen sink and did all the associated plumbing, plus electrical work.
In addition we put down new flooring and insulated walls.
The whole project took nearly three weeks.
We were really happy and proud at the end of it to be able to say we had completed a successful garage conversion.
During recent, weeks we have also carried out a number of bathroom installations.
Domestic work is just one line of our business. We also carry out regular maintenance service contract work, indoors and outdoors and sometimes both, at a range of domestic and commercial properties from office blocks and educational establishments to housing associations.
