It’s amazing how much interest in our work a programme like Channel 4’s Grand Designs creates wherever we are working on one of our projects. The passers-by are very interested in the build progress and often stop to ask what we are building, how long it will take to be finished and if it’s a “Grand Design”! Our South Woodford house is no exception.
The build progress has been good and we’re on track which always is great news in spite of periods of wet weather. The building is now water tight and the cladding is starting to go onto the outside. The first fix for electrics and plumbing is complete and the plastering well underway. It’s definitely starting to look like a fantastic new home!
Walking around the site, you start to get a feeling of how light and grand some of the main spaces will be – it’s very satisfying to see it all taking shape, the clients are starting to get very excited as the fixtures and fittings such as the bathroom go in.
The Photo Voltaic panels have now been installed and commissioned, which also marks the completion of the roof. Meanwhile, our client has signed off all of the sanitary ware, flooring and kitchen, which means we’re gearing up for the big push to start transforming the building site into a beautiful home.
