Wall treatment

When preparing walls ready for plastering or tiling a good dose of bostik wall treatment . It bonds any loose or flaky areas, the grit in it allows the plaster to stick , the colour is so you can see where you've been and seals over aertex so the plaster does not have a chemical reaction and fall off.

4 bathrooms to do in 5 weeks

Well we have undertaken the task of refitting four bathrooms in five weeks. So far it's going ok. Not too much of a shock apart from a glass shelf shattering and cutting my thumb nearly to the bone.
It's always a task to work out other people's wiring and plumbing. So we usually take it all out and start again. This way we can guarantee that it's all up to scratch with what we have undertaken.
Clients are really relaxed and the two massive huskies want to help all the time and not eating us is always handy.
Photos of the journey to completion will follow

The fan is a great help .

Found a railway line under the floor????

Terrible kitchen

Oh no another day of misery fitting a supposedly hand made kitchen th client supplied. After sending wrong units, wrong hinges, wrong doors, badly painted doors, units too deep, end panels too big, plinth the wrong size and so much more . They send their own fitters out and here is some of their work. Absolutely shocking. When we have overcome everything a full report with emails, photos and the client's comments will be published. I will also throw in their name as this is shit workmanship.

Just from two units fitted to either corner that are not level nor do the doors open or shut

the star is nearly completed by s1 builders ltd norfolk

After 3 long years of ups and downs caused by planners, an architect that stole money and messed the plans up for a year, the council, the public, environment agency, the weather, working with traditional methods, money and a lovely client that wants things right but changes her mind every two days we are almost there!

Luckily i have no hair or it would of fell out by now!

One of the biggest projects that we have worked on, but certainly the longest! Its been a roller coaster ride filled with highs and lows that have expanded our capability to deal with these types of restoration. Unfortunately the seller conned the client into believing it would only cost a set amount to restore who would not listen to my reasoning to leave well alone. But! anyway they bought it and here we are. Top off, floors and walls out, this building has almost been re built ! What a building it is too, the client has not spared any expense in the works and tried to replicate what it would have originally been like. so i have compiled a few shots of the latest and at the end will put the full photo album up from start to finish which will be several hundred photos.
