Wall Removal / Load Bearing walls removed / Remove Arches
It doesn’t have to be a “character home transformation” for us to service you. We’re happy to remove any old wall – be it an arch, a dwarf wall or a structural load bearing wall.
Adding a Bay Window
A bay window would have to be the icon of the character home. If your home doesn’t have one, we can make you one.
Doors & Windows
If your rooms are too pokey or you would like more light, there are many options available to you.
The work involved in this is far beyond that of a handyman, yet generally too small for your average builder to service. As our tradesmen are skilled in such a diverse range of fields including bricklaying, rendering and carpentry, we are able provide any number of possible options to alter your walls!
If you’ve made a few changes to your original floor plan, you may find that the doorways are no longer optimum.
Whatever inspires you, we can do, so let us help you create the home you always imagined.
Old air-conditioning units not only look unattractive but can also “date” a home.
These can be removed and again, there are several options available to you.
The wall can be bricked in and plastered over so you’d never have known it was there.
Another option, if you’d like to let in more light, is to replace it with a window
or even glass bricks as in this example.
