Customer description


we are buying a three bedrooms detached house that needs full refurbishment. The house has two floors, the ground floor comprises entrance hall (3.6m x 2.7m), shower room, kitchen (3.6m x 2.7m), dining room (3.7m x 3.68m) and living room (3.59m x 3.4m). The second floor comprises three bedrooms (~3.6m x 3.5m each), bathroom (no toilet) and storage space.

Major works would include: 1) make the kitchen open plan with the dining room, 2) extend the bathroom upstairs by using the storage space and part of the landing 3) put a toilet in the bathroom, 4) make a french door leading to the garden in the dining room (currently it just has a big window) and 5) remove the shower in downstairs (probably washing machine will go there instead). 6) Still not confirmed, but probably we will install an interior french door between the living room and dining room.

We want to replace the carpet with a wooden floor, install a new kitchen (including some tiling around the kitchen area), install a new bath and replace both washing basins and tiling of the bathrooms.

The walls in the dining room and living room are partially covered with wooden panels. These have to be taken, and the walls might need some plastering. Finally, all the plugs in the house have been raised around 10 cm up, and the plug box is sticking out the wall, they have to be put back in place.

We are currently renting and we will move in once the works are finished. So we would appreciate an estimate of the time the refurbishment could take as well as the price.

Thank you.


Feedback for TSN Consultants Ltd

It has been a pleasure to work with David and his team. David met with us several times before starting this project to discuss our ideas and expectations. He gave us advice and guidance before and during the refurbishment --you can easily tell they know their job inside-out. He and his team have done a professional work with everything, knocking walls, making walls (plastered is exceptionally good), floors, bathroom, electrics, installing the kitchen... Nothing was ever too much trouble or not possible. It's a shame there is no option to post pics here. We cannot recommend David and his team enough.
