How do I manage a design and build project?

What a week, frost and thermals on Monday, sunglasses today. The only consistent thing in the air this week has been the dust around our design build and renovation project! Today’s update is very visual. We have made great progress but I can’t sit still and write for long or I too will look like Miss Haversham – covered in dust. Must keep moving, I believe it’s harder for dust to stick to a moving target!


The roof is on, the windows are in

The old blockwork is coming down to open up the kitchen

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.
