Re: Big Thanks and recommendation of EF member

Fantastic work. I have a barn that needs doing like this as well as the attic space in the house. Unfortunately I don't have the spare cash yet to do it, but the photos have certainly inspired me.

Re: Big Thanks and recommendation of EF member

Well yesterday after reading BigBlue2's recommendation I contacted this EF member regarding possible services for our hardwood floor. I thought a sanding would be required and he advised me last evening what exactly to do....and today the job is completed and I a smiling because he saved us 2500 chf at least...... all because he took the time to pass on his advice! So he gets a second recommendation within 24 hrs! cheers!

I particularly like the built-in cupboards and bookshelves - they would perfect at our house too. the perfect solution to optimise space in ancient structure which are difficult to change.
thanks for sharing, I might contact him. we are (a bit unconventionally, I admit) looking for someone who'd like to earn a holiday in a beautiful ligurian setting doing a bit of hard work

Where in Liguria? Also have a place there that also needs some work )

Re: Big Thanks and recommendation of EF member

I have been a bit slow to respond to this thread. Now that I have located a few before photos it adds a dimension to the undertaking. A big thanks to Andy and Kirsty for their patience, hospitality and confidence in me to get the job done. The design brief was very organic, (we want a room, floor and ceiling here!!) with a budget in mind and working with the features (some positive some negative) already there and a few changes on the way, we mostly agreed on things and you can be the judge of the results. Not all of the work is mine, Andy worked with me on some of the more difficult (for 1 person) tasks and finished all the plastering and painting.

Re: Big Thanks and recommendation of EF member

a couple of people have recently asked who did the work on our house, so I'm just resurrecting this thread for a shout out to Rob (RTN)
