Transformation of the pink house

This well prominent home in Lewisham was well known for the previous owner's penchant for brightly coloured masonry paint.

We hope that in years to come it will become known as the house with the glass box, although at present the 2 tonnes of reinforced concrete on site is currently supporting nothing more than a plasterer's paddle drill.

Installation of the structural glass by Glassbuild is imminent.

The Pentagon

Home Office

Neither a project for either the US Defence Department or Amber Rudd, but a space for myself and Mrs D to work from home.


Built at weekends and on fair days by my own (now less than) fair hands.

Windows and door to arrive this month, and the project to be completed in February with another article on the whole process in Mummy's Gin Fund to follow.

A big hole in the ground!

Hither Green Job A

OK... So it doesn't look like much, but this is where it all starts. Trenches dug for foundations and a new manhole located to take all the...err... stuff... outside the footprint of this extension. Concrete to be cast next week, then blockwork up to DPC level. Meanwhile the client is able to remain in occupation with a temporary kitchen until the extension shell flies up and the break though of the existing rear of the house gets formed. Timed perfectly to coincide with the school holidays!
