Home Renovation in
Tower Hamlets , Dover

A customer case study

We were pleased to be able to complete this renovation project at this 3-bedroom home in the Tower Hamlets area of Dover.

Cost of Kitchen: £7500 plus fitting costs

Project completion: 3 weeks

The brief

The client wanted an open-plan living area, a slightly bigger kitchen and more practical storage space. And of course they wanted an updated look.

The Work

Our involvement in the project included:

  • Removing walls in living room
  • Boarding and skimming ceiling
  • Putting in wooden beams
  • Blocked up existing door
  • Repairs to the floor
  • Laminate flooring & new skirting hallway, lounge, dining and kitchen

The kitchen was also re-wired and re-plumbed for the new fixtures.

The kitchen was supplied through Howdens Kitchens who have a depot just outside of Dover, and one in Folkestone.

One of the problems we encountered was between initial quote and starting the work the client changed the design meaning that when we came to fit the beams in the ceiling they were no longer the correct length. After liasing with architect / structural engineer we managed to over come it and move the kitchen towards completion. This did create extra work over boarding the entire 1st floor ceiling ensuring we remained compliant with building regulations. Problems can arise with any job and by maintaining a good working relationship with various sub contactors means we can often keep the job on schedule, as was the case in this instance.

We suggested the client use oak for their breakfast bar/worktop. We then added a splashback on the back which added a unique sparkle the client now really enjoys.
