Our client needed a small extension to the rear to extend the sitting room. This involved knocking out the ground floor wall and propping up the house by installing a large steel beam and posts. We re-used the original door and window and installed 2 velux roof windows .The project also included laying laminate flooring throughout the ground floor. The job was complete in 4 weeks even with some of the worst Winter storms we'd ever experienced.

This was our second job for the clients in the Shankill. We had previously built a porch.
This time they needed a new layout. The clients home is a 3 bed semi-d house with the bathroom downstairs. With 3 kids, the layout of the house was not suiting their needs so we designed a new layout to make the house work for them . We converted the upstairs in to 3 bedrooms and a bathroom. We put in a new storage tank, insulated all the external walls and reskimmed the whole upstairs. This job took under 3 weeks to complete. Scroll down to see photos of work in progress.

Our client wanted to convert his garage into a new kitchen and downstairs wc. As part of these project, the original kitchen was removed from the main house and converted into a family dining room with a full height window to get the best light into the house.
Converting the garden involved blocking the front and rear door, installing new windows and toilet, pouring new floors, insulating exterior walls and breaking through to the main house.
we also laid a oak solid floor in the hall and dining room, tiled the new kitchen and painted all the newly skimmed walls. It turned out very well and the client will be getting us back to continue the new solid flooring in to the living room.

See the complete project diary in photos for this apartment renovation. It was a complete renovation, as best explained by Lee's client:
"It was a complete renovation of an apartment that was built in 1982. With the exception of the windows and front door, everything was changed and there was nothing left of the original apartment. Old furniture, fixtures and appliances were removed and replaced with new. The original kitchen was small, so Lee took down part of a wall separating the kitchen from the lounge to accomodate a larger kitchen with a nicer open plan look. "
A roof replacement at Irishtown, Dublin 4. The project involved stripping the old roof and re sheeting it out. We also made the bathroom roof light wider as the old one was too dark and replaced the glass on the kitchen roof light. There was a void in between 2 houses that the client wanted closed so we made a valley between them to stop the rain getting through. The entire project took 8 days to complete.

The original porch for this Shankill home was cold and damp. We first removed the old porch, added an attractive new weatherproof porch with a new doorway, and side windows. Inside, we knocked out the wall between the hall and new porch, making the front entrance far more bright and spacious, and laid a new tiled floor in the hallway.
The front driveway also got some attention with a new pattern imprinted concrete driveway in a charcoal gray.

This renovation project in Shankill tackled several issues. The main item for our clients was that they needed an additional bathroom and were happy to sacrifice a spare bedroom to create it. We converted the bedroom into a luxury bathroom with recessed shower, luxury bath, toilet and sink. The bathroom was fully tiled and waterproofed.
Throughout the house, we also replaced old doors with new shaker style doors and frames. In the kitchen, we installed patio doors for easy access to the garden.
