Job of the Year

Huge congratulations to Ellouise Hempstead and her MyBuilder tradesman Martin Robinson of MJO Limited, in Lincolnshire.

Ellouise nominated Martin for the expertise, dedication, energy and generosity he brought to her challenging renovation project.

“Martin has taken our dream and made it his own. He’s worked with us to understand what we need, what we want, and what we’d love (but don’t think we can afford) and he’s helped us to make those things a reality. He’s an honest and reliable builder, who cares about his customers, and wants their project to be a success.”

Repositioning bedroom fitted furniture

Aberdeen

When we moved house we inherited a master bedroom with fine beech fitted furniture. The bed space was between two single wardrobes with bridging wall units and elegant cornicing, but with no room at all for bedside tables. We wanted a practical rearrangement while retaining the furniture and storage capacity of the bedroom. This seemed to be an awkward brief to fulfil, but not for Wojciech! He devised an ingenious solution which involved dismantling the separate units, creating a double wardrobe from the single ones, reducing the depth of the bridging units and stacking them to fit over an existing chest of drawers. With an eye for detail he completed the new tall unit using a side redundant from the wardrobes, to create a visually pleasing unbroken line. By careful cutting, he had just enough cornicing for both the double wardrobe and storage chest. He also installed new wall lights and repositioned electrical sockets and switches. He and his team worked speedily and good heartedly and also did some necessary redecoration. The job was done in a day and a half, except that he came back to fit a whole length of skirting (at no extra cost) rather than leave or fill in a 2 inch gap, and later to fit a matching light switch. As well as being practical, it all looks nice and we are delighted.
