Category: Previous Work

In this category you can find examples of past building work that I have undertaken. I will continue to update this category with all future jobs and will try to show as many (local to stroud) previous jobs so you can see the quality of my work.


Upper Garage room renovation.

The Client is very pleased with the improvement of a 1st floor garage storage space. This is now an Office (or potential additional guest room).

The garage had an existing timber staircase with balustrades to the storage space. The floor area is now increased by extending it into the stairwell and changing the balustrades to a partition wall. Two additional partition walls are built under the horizontal roof timbers to create hidden storage areas.

To improve the energy efficiency, the roof is now insulated and the whole room plastered and decorated.

The Client is impressed with the finished work, resulting in another Project at the property – replacement of a kitchen.

From this
To a new multi purpose room with hidden storage.

Another little job completed in 2014 in Reservoir Close, Stroud, Gloucestershire.

Customer had a problem with damp.

I stripped back the roof tiles and discovered the insulation was not adequate and that it was causing a damp spot. The felt had also rotted out. Replaced this with a new breathable felt at the bottom of the roof and replaced the insulation.

I also treated the timber work to help prevent future decay.

Customer Testimonial:

“Adrian was very efficient and clean and tidy in his work. I have no hesitation in reccomending him to any of my friends and neighbours. The work was finished to a high standard and he has no complaints from me”
