Skirting painting and ceiling lights

A new customer needed a hand to finish painting his newly renovated home, I helped by painting a coat of gloss throughout the downstairs kitchen,hallway, toilet and upstairs hallway.

Client was glad to have found me and was so pleased with the job that he will contact me again when there is more painting in order.

Whilst I was there, I fitted a ceiling light in the toilets as well as a towel rail and mirror.

Door bell wiring

A regular customer in Dunblane required a door bell to be rewired, all parts were there, but somehow the push button was disconnected from the bell system.

All fixed and working again 😉

Flood lights and pictures

A big customer of mine in Dunblane needed a couple of floodlight bulbs replaced, re-sited and some mirrors and various pictures hung on the wall.

I also need to source a small bit of wire to repair the door bell
