This project was one of our greatest (and most enjoyable) challenges – total refurbishment of a wreck on a shoestring!
Having fallen in love with a dilapidated family house in Parsons Green, reality struck and the owners found themselves overwhelmed by the scale of the project. They asked for our help and we were delighted to step into the breach!
Above all, budget. Our clients had stretched to buy the property and there was not a huge amount left in the coffers.
With the wife heavily pregnant, our clients were not keen to bring their baby home to an interim rental or a building site. Time was of the essence.
Untouched since the 1970s (and still boasting an outside loo!), this house was a gut job. We worked with our preferred build team to strip it back to its bones, re-plumb and rewire.
In their previous property our clients had enjoyed a sleek German kitchen but there was no budget for this and their personal aesthetic had evolved in any case. Engaging a talented joiner based in Hampshire proved our master stroke. As well as building a rustic kitchen with space for everything, he embellished the staircase with Shaker paneling and crafted crittall-inspired French windows across the back of the property, all significantly less expensive than factory made alternatives. High Street sanitaryware kept costs down in the secondary bathrooms, allowing our clients to splash out on Lefroy Brooks in their master suite.
