Here we have an example of a total room renovation from start to finish, rooms looked really dated, and the roof had hardly any insulation. So following our bathroom renovations all was gutted and replaced with a brand new everything! New floor (burnt out design), new walls, new ceiling with open plan right up to the roof ridge, new wiring together with TV and network cable, smoke alarm etc… This post shows an extensive set of photographs as well as a couple of videos shot showing the various stages of the renovation with commentary explaining the stages of the work, the final result is quite spectacular! As of today the room is pretty much terminated, but, as always, there still are snags to deal with, the most impressive result is that the insulation work really made a huge difference, coming from a drafty and generally cold upstairs to a room that is draft proof and generally needing little heating, we planned and fitted 2 radiators (see videos) and, as of November 2021 they have not been turned on; a combination of downstairs heating and bathroom door being left opened with a bulky cast iron radiator provides sufficient heat to keep the room nice and cosy. So much so that we’re probably going to remove one of the radiators as it is likely to be redundant.
All in all when the house is completely renovated (downstairs is next, keep a watch!), we’re confident that our heating bill will be very low.
I currently have the whole of November fully booked up and now spilling into December with only a couple of days available in December. Should you need any work done before the end of the year, please hurry! My diary is filling very quickly.
I will take time off between Dec 13th to January 3rd.
