Grand Designs pt2

On Saturday we were able to give a full day to renovating the House Of Loud. Dan & Dom did the technical stuff, ginga & Cookie removed the floors and walls and Cris & Big H went to Wickes in the Sunshine Bus.

This build is a Unibond-Evostik collaboration

No mod cons

Cris checks out Turbonutta Industries new technology centre

Suited up for a trip into the loft

Looking a lot better - floor tiles gone, wallpaper gone

Dan & Cookie are amazed by the progress while Big H makes himself useful with the kettle

The end of a long day

Dannyboy and Loud Bird have recently bought their first house, in Chesham. The challenge now is to get it in a livable state. It's having a total rewire and replumb, along with walls down etc. I popped round on Thursday evening to see what they've let themselves in for.

Living room - complete with water feature

Fully fitted kitchen

Nice radiator - not so nice curtains

Nikki's walk in wardrobe

Errr, no it's not

The bungalow is of an unusual fabricated steel frame construction, rather than the usual block/brick walls, and is getting the full Turbonutta AV treatment. Unfortunately at this stage it's got to get worse before it can get better.
