Internal door replaced with new.

The new door had to be cut down to fit. With panelled door one should replace the wooden batten back with glue.
 Once fitted, the latch and door handles are fitted. Job done. 


Covered damp chimney breast

This chimney breast had damp coming through the plaster and the customer wanted it covering over with new. So I suggested dry walling over and plastering.


I used 3×2 stud wall timber to the breast area keeping the timber spaced away from the surface with plastic so that the wood would not absorb the moisture.


I also made a cut for ventilation.

Next I added the plaster board.


Corner trim is added

Next part of the job is to plaster.


Then finish of with skirting and cover over the air vent.


Nice job


Removed laminate flooring and replaced with tiles

As you can see the leak had affected the laminate flooring, so time to replace. The customer wanted floor tiles and for the pipes to be boxed in under the towel rail.


Old flooring


Once l had the tiles stuck down, l was ready to grout.


I boxed in the pipes read to tile over.



Nice job. Completed in a day and half. Floor tiling by Chris.

Bathroom in Wynyard redesigned.

The customer wanted to remove the large boxed in area under the window in order to make more space. I suggested moving the toilet & wash basin around so the waste from the toilet was closer to the down pipe. The supply to the basin was chased in which allowed the positioning to be directly under the window.




Removed the utilities & opened up the boxing in, to view the waste & supply.


I have already removed the toilet was, but you can see the down pipe. Once I was happy with the pipe work re design I boxed in as tight as possible and started tiling.




The customer wanted lino tiles place for the flooring so, I added some 5 mm ply as a clean surface to work on. Once I had placed the flooring tiles I continued with fitting the toilet & wash basin to the new positions.




Looking great!

Hi Chris.  All looks great. The floor tiles just make a particular bold feature and the work you did on the sloped box just adds to the space. Happy customer.
