First off – we want to thank ALL the guys who have helped us out on this project. It was not a big project by any means to them I suspect, but it has been a big deal for us! Although we were prepared for the work and had planned it for some while, it still seemed that the house had us “in its grip” – still has a bit even now while we batten down the hatches and get sorted out!!
Every one of the people involved have been an absolute delight and fun to have in the house! It made the job go so much easier for us and that means a lot I believe.
The dust has settled at last and all is now iun place – we’ve been “sane” now since the end of July and trying to get back to normality!
The photos on our Facebook profile show the lot in all its boring detail! However it’s a great reminder of what happened during the year. Where DID the time go?!
21-12-11 (this is personnel in reverse order almost!) and this is revised having been written back in July and forgotten!
We have a working kitchen!! BJA Construction with Lee and Paul have finished their part leaving us with a fantastic job done – recommended guys to anyone looking for a kitchen installation! Yeovil based and details on Facebook right here. Lee Ashton and his sidekick Paul. Great lads and very efficient, great helpful ideas, quick and great to have about.

The project started January 15th with the ceiling being taken down – false ceiling and all – this was hiding a multitude of rubbish in the wiring and general junk hanging out! The mess was ….. well – you can guess! probably been there yourselves!!
The first gang in – S & R Downton – all here in the Facebook Albums! We could not believe the speed they had the offending walls sorted and the RSJs in place! The photos all show a fair way how the project developed and proceeded, so I am not going to bore you further here.
My main reason for all this is to give mention to all the folks, where possible, who have helped up. All the people booked in by the Downtons have been excellent and really made the whole “experience” a LOT more bearable than it could have been.
For that reason I have NO hesitation in recommending S & R Downton (+ folks they use), B&Q with BJA Construction Ltd (above) who came in to set our kitchen. Steve at Weymouth B&Q was excellent and knew just what we needed when he came round to size us up.
Now a short while ago, our neighbours, Walter and Jane found they needed some work done… Guess who they asked in to do it.
