These clients, regulars of ours had been wanting to replace their kitchen for quite some time. The room in question was part of a 17th century farmhouse with plenty of oak, exposed ceiling beams and an Aga with the original stone surround. The challenge on this job was to restore and maintain all of the existing features while at the same time bringing it up-to-date with a new kitchen.
Once the old kitchen had been stripped out, we could set about laying the new tiles, restoring the oak beams, making good on the walls and stripping out the ceiling in between the oak beams in order to fit new down-lighters and replace all the electrics and plumbing, ready for when the new kitchen was delivered.
At the same time the client took the opportunity to give their Aga a complete service and refurb.
Once our kitchen units and appliances arrived we could get cracking. As with all of our suitable jobs, this was entered into the Federation of Master Builders Awards which is held every two years, and we picked up 'Best Kitchen or Bathroom Project - South East Region'.
