Who to hire? how long it may take? changing carpet, laying wood floor, painting
I'm moving into a terrace house in London. Before I move in, I'd like to do some works:
1) Change carpets in 4 bedrooms (4.3mx5m, 3.6mx5m, 2.5mx3m, 3mx3.6m)
2) Change from carpet to wood floor for the living room (~3.5mx8m)
3) Paint all the rooms (4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathroom, 2 living rooms - 3.5mx8m and 4.5mx7m, 1 kitchen 3.5mx5m, hallways)
I'm new to arranging these building works. I hope that the experts here would be able to help suggest who I should hire and in which order. Would it be better to get someone who can do all these works?
I also need to estimate when I should plan to move in. To be on the safe side, how long do you think these works will take?
You should do the painting first ,once the painting it's done you can lay the carpet and the flooring
