House Renovation


I recently bought a house here in Basel, that requires a lot of work, namely:

1) Under floor heating installation.
2) New windows.
3) New bathroom
4) New plumbing.
5) Complete re-wire
6) Remove 4 walls to make more open plan.
7) Tiling.
8 ) New kitchen
9) New sanitary system.
10) New wooden floors.
11) Papering/Painting/rendering of walls.
12) Insulation of loft ... can see backs of tile when standing in loft.
13) Loft conversion .. if budget allows.

Is anyone able to either perform some of the above work and/or recommend some people/companies to assist? For item number 6, I am trying to locate an English speaking engineer who can advise and gurantee what needs to be done.

Re: House Renovation

Run this by EF member N1G3L ... He has a lot of experience in all you require, and might be tempted out of Wales this Summer for such a project.

He does not frequent the site often so PM me back if you cant get hold of him...
