Having a head for heights on our design build and renovation project

The weather has been great this week, cold but relatively bright and progress on the new build part of our deign build and renovation project has been steady.

We are now on the scaffolding with window lintels about to go in and the steels for the gable end all installed. This has been a messy job with steels going through to the master bedroom on Monday and acco props propping up the kitchen ceiling for 2 days. The builders were very thoughtful and left enough space for us to get in to the dishwasher and washing machine but sadly not enough to for us to open the door to the wine fridge!

My work to get the garage underpinned has paid off and it is now all sorted and at a fraction of the price of the original steel and concrete beam. It just goes to show how a little creative thinking can really make all the difference on any project.

Today the floor joists went in to form the kitchen ceiling and upper floor so you can really see how the space works.

I’m now getting very excited about where everything is going to fit.  From now on I think we’ll see some speedy work on block and stone so every day should give us a little reward to photograph.

 If you have a building project, interior or garden and landscaping project which you need help with or ideas for then please give me a ring: Alison 01572 747318 or 07973843020.

I work on interior design and garden design projects in Stamford, Lincolnshire, Oakham, Uppingham and Rutland as well as further afield. I will design a garden to complement the architecture of your home and choose the right landscaping materials to complement it. If you are frustrated with endless searching for the right fabric or wallpaper and paint colours and overwhelmed with the enormous choice, then allow me to make a handpicked selection for you. I will complement the style of your existing rooms and provide a few choice pieces which will bring the whole look together.
