Gavin first approached us through the Federation Of Master Builders, Find A Builder website.
He had produced extensive plans, drawings and calculations and was looking for a builder who would be both capable of realizing his concept and enhancing the final product.
The kitchen was constructed of shop bought base & wall units whilst the doors were bespoke; the recessed handles which ran throughout were hand finished by one of our expert decorators, the aim being to attain a factory finish for a lesser cost and shorter lead time.
The original work-surface specification was for bespoke Formica; it was fantastic to look at but after talking to Gavin and hearing how hard wearing their intended use would be, we weren’t sure the longevity would be what they were aiming for. We suggested going for a 40mm oak surface, oiled and finished in acrylic matt varnish, it would last a lifetime and could be sanded and resealed over and again. The oak was agreed upon, bought and fitted, still giving the beautiful finish the Mellish’s wished for.
We removed the existing windows and doors and supplied and fitted replacements to match current local authority specifications and our client’s budget. The floor was finished in oak with bespoke skirtings applied to finish.
