Lynda, I see your house… x
Finally finished a shop I have been working on. It has been rebuilt completely to increase the ceiling heights to allow for a lift running though the centre.
Haven’t put a photo of this on for a while … added a few things, still a favourite room of mine. A Marie Antoinette room, it represents excess, hers and mine 😊
Almost completed the new facade exterior, using the original brickwork as it’s a nice feature and well done, both I and more importantly the client like it. I have some railings to add and of course the window displays to build, but it’s coming on.
My new project, a shop which is a bit of a challenge, how to raise the ceiling heights from 8” to around 9 1/2” on each floor, so a rebuild pretty much. This and a new frontage. I can show you before and during, but no after yet as it’s a work in progress..
One for the boys…(and Jane Woodham)I have a garage, so have just completed a 1/12th car for it.. never again. I think I will stick to pink jobs in future..
An update on my 200 year old commission. I’m nearly there… the stairs took some work!
I have spent my day sanding and prepping my restoration, I think to restore you should compliment the original build, you can see a previous attempt at restoration/decoration which I’m having to undo. I mean really how much gloss paint do you need?
I am going bonkers drawing individual bricks on my latest commission, Flemish bond so it’s harder than usual. Here’s a before and during, it’s not finished yet though.. it’s coming on..
Restoration.. from some tiny pieces of the original, used as a template to hand make new mouldings, you can see before during and after.. Yes I know it may look a little basic, but it is an exact copy of what was there originally. Remember it’s 200 years old..
