The ongoing story

Life has been busy here at Upcycle Interiors! We have been working round the clock on a 3 bedroom 1930's house renovation in South East London.
We had the redesign of the internal layout and sub-contracts in place as soon as the Conveyancing was completed - ready for exchange of contracts. Within the first 4 days we had completed the rip-out and didnt lose any time removing a structural wall and inserting a new beam. Other structural changes included taking out two windows, installing new bifold doors and blocking up the existing back door.
Existing fireplaces have been restored to working order, original floorbaords have been refurbished, and original 1930s doors have been sourced for a new hand made wardrobe to match the existing panelled doors in the room.
Completion was on time - finished in early 2016.
All design and build work was by Upcycle Interiors, specialist work was subcontracted: structural works, plastering, stone floor, bricklaying, electrics, plumbing, chimneys and log burner, wooden floor sanding.
The large (6x20m) garden is currently undergoing complete relandscaping (2m high blockwork rendered wall, fences, relevel the garden, brick path, decking, bike shed, potting shed, herb garden, raspberry bushes, vegetable patch) expected to finish at the end of 2016 - rerady to plan in spring 2017
