So much has happened!

I took the plunge: quit my full time (secure) job so I could set up professionally. In June 2018 we were finally incorporated at Companies House. The step had to be taken, there just arent enough hours in the day to work for someone else whilst trying to do my own thing and persue my passion. To be honest, the idea has been in my mind since I was studying my GCSEs at age 14/15 and I designed a small housing development... I always thought I would have my own firm. Then in 2007 during my Post Grad studies I really refined my style and started testing ideas.

Fast forward to 2012 and my property investment journey really began.

As I am sure most people will tell you, chosing to leave a well paid and secure (full time.... permanent...) employment contract is not a small step or anything to be taken lightly! It took some courage, but after more than 10 years working for other people it was time to work for myself.


After 2 months of full time property searching (which can feel extremely unrewarding at times, especially when you view property after property, make offer after offer and simply get nowhere... while not earning a penny) and meeting with estate agents we found the perfect property. The next renovation should hopefully begin before Christmas! :-)

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
