Jumbo flat pack

A Client who recently moved in in Dollar had a massive wardrobe, this was a bespoke kit made by a joiner in England and they wanted it built back to its former glory, having no plans nor any contact with the original Joiner, this was a big big project.

To complicate things, this kit had been fitted in a bigger room so it had to be skimmed of by about 10cm on one end, so not only we had nothing to refer to, it had to be modified also.

But I pulled it off with some help from my Son, Lewis

 

Also here are videos of before

…and after

Getting busy

Sorry I haven’t been able to keep you up to date, it is getting busier and busier for me.

Odd hours?

I am happy to work quite late in the night if necessary, my Moto is “It’s gotta be done, let’s do it now!” Flat packs, small electrical and plumbing as well as more advanced bathroom decoration is what I do a lot of these days.

Moving?

If you’re moving into Dunblane call me to help organise your new house to how you want it to be, no questions except the best possible advice or work.
