5 days to a lovely lounge

There’s lots of reasons you just need things to happen at the right time when completing work on your house – little ones running around, getting ready for a big event you’re hosting or just simply a little bit of impatience and wanting everything completed now! The key is a well planned timetable and fantastic trades all booked in and ready to go.

We recently completed work on this lounge whilst the family were on holiday and these day by day photos show how much progress was made every day that week, so the room was ready for the family to come home to!
