Originally house didn’t have any extension and was in a quite dated state. The main job was to build kitchen extension with large roof window, wide patio sliding doors and to refurbish whole ground floor. Customer had troubles with wiring on the ground floor and fuse box was unsafe and didn’t have RCD switches, no smoke or heat detectors. Tiptop electricians had to rewire whole ground floor and of course to install modern consumer unit.
Customer told us that they always wanted to have large open plan kitchen with island bar in the middle. And we made her dream to come true. Once all wiring and plumbing works completed, we could move to a next step - engineered wooden floor installation. We did recommend customer to lay floor under the kitchen units as well, so then in the future kitchen can be changed and it won’t affect flooring at all.
Most of the materials was chosen by both wife and husband. We are sure they contacted hundreds of different suppliers to choose floor, radiators, kitchen itself, appliances and we believe it is nice experience to get beautiful things for your house, something you really like and enjoy.
Also, we decorated whole house: all bedrooms, hallway and bathroom. On the top floor we created shower-room with toilet and a small basin.
There are some exterior works we done as well, like: new fence and gate installation, old summer house demolition and removal, decking, exterior lights in front and at the back of the house.
Please, have a look photos below. You will see different stages of the project as well.
Some useful information:
Duration of the project: 4 month
Evaluation: extension and refurbishment has added more than double value that it has cost to build it.
