A FLYING ROOF? THE NEIGHBOURS COULDN'T BELIEVE THEIR EYES!!!
In the week leading up to Christmas whilst everyone was winding down for their break, Bruce & Co., were coming to the rescue to a couple out at Ditchling. They had just added to their beautiful country home with a large detached two story building in their grounds housing a superb games room and gym. Although the building was not a Bruce & Co. creation we were more than happy to help. The entire roof had blown off into the neighbors garden! Although out of hours and whilst most companies had closed for Christmas, there was no time to waste with all their games and equipment open to the elements! We erected scaffolding in a record time and fitted a heavy duty waterproof covering, ensuring that the whole building remained secure and dry over the Christmas period before we returned to start on a new roof. Result - Very happy customers (Photos to follow)
WHEN A WALL IS A WORK OF ART..
Meanwhile back in Bexhill all was not well with a giant wall collapsing onto a pavement and road in Cantalupe Road, 5 days and 6,000 bricks later its now better than new! (Photos to follow)
The Summer is fast approaching and despite the dreadful weather in the Winter/Spring, work all around the County is now fully underway!
HAVE YOU GOT AN OLD DETACHED GARAGE IN YOUR GARDEN?
What can you do to get more room for Grandparents who want to come and live with you, or guests who want to come and stay? Well a couple out at Seddlescombe who needed more rooms for visitors invited us in to have a look at their property which had an old detached garage in their garden at present only being used to hoard years of junk (Around 75% of garages in the UK never see a car!) Result, planning permission is in place for a brand new house to replace this tired old garage!
This house will be a timber framed house in keeping with the rural area and the original house on site. It will have two bedrooms, lounge/dinning room and bathroom. It will also benefit from beautiful bi-fold doors in the lounge opening up onto decking and overlooking what has to be one of the most spectacular views in the County! . Photos to follow..
ALWAYS DREAMED OF A UTILITY ROOM? BUT WHERE TO PUT IT??
A Customer called us in wanting more room for their washing machine, freezer, tumble dryer etc. Simple... we designed and constructed a brand new brick built Utility Room onto the side of the house - Result - very happy customer :)
TEENAGERS NEED AN EXTRA ROOM? And Don't Forget The Extra Bathroom!!
At this semi-detached 3 bedroomed house in St Leonards the answer was simple, once again the integral garage was being used to store years of 'stuff', 'stuff' which would probably never see the light of day and which has now headed off to the tip. Soon to be arriving in its place is a lovely new conversion holding a spacious bedroom with bathroom ensuite. Result - happy parents and more than happy kids! photos to follow..
And the work around Sussex continues.....
