Below you will see details and photos of the latest major projects that I have undertaken and completed.
 
March April 2010 - Refurbishment of flat in Newark
Time taken 2 weeks
 
I was instructed by a friend to totally redecorate , lay new flooring which was laminate / wooden and ceramic tiles in all rooms in the flat she owned in Newark.
Laminate click flooring was sourced and fitted in the bedroom , main living room and dining room. The hallway was fitted with solid wood planks giving a laminated effect.
The bathroom an kitchen were fitted with polished black ceramic tiles.
In addition to this all the walls and ceilings had to be painted, two new doors fitted and all woodwork painted.
Once this was completed I then fitted new shelving in the kitchen, changed all mains sockets from plastic to polished silver  and installed a new splashback in pink tiles in the kitchen area.
I have since been back and uprooted two trees , repaired the guttering and rebuilt the shed.
Next task is erected fencing around the property some time in Aug 2011.

June 2010 - Refurbishment of Moby Dicks Fish and Chip shop Frontage in Louth.
Time taken 10 days
 
This job actually came from me buying a chip butty and leaving a few cards. I was asked initially to quote on this job from some plans that had been put together to outline the requirement which was to  totally rebuild and redesign the shop front and sides  from the current state of pvc cladding to total wood frontage to fit in with the councils' heritage compliance for buildings in Louth town centre .
I started with removing all the plastic cladding and taking back to bare face wood. I had to then, according to plans drawn up and build from a scaffold, a new cornice from 13mm plywood and decorative mouldings, create new pillars from 13mm plywood, install new window cills under existing windows, and then decorate the pillars with framing pattern.

Redesign of the shop front at Via Italia Restaurant in Louth - 10 days
 
Whilst working on the job above in Louth I was approached by Sharaz the owner of the Via Italia Restaurant and asked if I could make some changes to the front of the restaurant similar to what I had done to Moby Dicks Chip Shop.
Firstly I had to make major repairs to the roofing area above the signage area.
Further repairs were made to the window cill at the front of the shop by chopping out all the old rotten wood and and replacing it with a new manufactured cill.
All the masonary areas were covered with 13mm ext plywood and the Menu box was removed and replaced with wood panelling with framing effect.
I also had to replace four broken window panes in the windows belonging to the flat above the shop.
The whole outside walls of the building were repainted with the colour gold. As I was not able to find a masonry paint in gold I covered the whole wall area in metallic gold spray paint.
I also had to then repair the guttering area and repaint it.
All the wood panelling that was replaced or added was painted in a dark chocolate.
The roof area above the signage area was changed and the lead removed. I also shortened and moved the sign lighting.
The garage doors were painted and pillars added with frame effect. The end result was quite an amazing difference. Hope you like it.
