Project: Full House Renovation
Dream Space: New family home
The Project: Mr & Mrs Simpson are a young professional couple with a three year old daughter. Their dream was to transform their recently purchased property into their new family home. The 4 bedroom house was in need of extensive refurbishment and modernisation, including a new kitchen, bathroom and yoga studio for Mrs Simpson’s business.
As this was an extensive project a strict budget was applied and close consultation with the clients was applied at all times. The house was predominately gutted, although care was taken to restore some of the original features (Fire places, Sash + French windows). The original floor boards were either retained or replaced, then stripped and varnished throughout and the family bathroom was made bigger by redesigning the floor plan. Existing rooms where demolished and the new layout constructed to meet the clients specific needs. At the end of the project, all walls and woodwork were stripped back and/or painted, making the home ready to move into.

5. Any other comments, feedback or suggestions: We were recommended Paul by several neighbours who proudly showed us the work that Paul had done for them, including a stunning loft conversion. From the very first consultation and estimate, we felt 100% confident that Paul was honest, hardworking, highly skilled, and very professional. Paul managed the complete renovation of our Victorian house, accommodating all our ideas and needs, while adding his experience and imagination to the project. Paul brought in a team of hard-working and skilled contractors throughout the project, gave us regular updates and tours of the site, and consulted and advised us at every step with decisions that needed to be made.
Paul renovated our house with a complete rewire and new plumbing, re-stitched brickwork, a new extended kitchen, enlarged bathroom, damp course, new ceilings, sanded floors throughout, installation of a original reclaimed fireplace, replastering, complete decoration, and new period skirting boards and other features.
The renovation was a complete success, Paul was a joy to work with, and the end result is a beautiful family home tailor-made for us.
We whole-heartedly recommend Paul, and hope to work with him again on a rear extension and loft conversion.
