This project below was the latest, only being fitted last month. It required some new flooring. The taking
out of the old, and behind the large door, some cladding and the installation of the light that comes on when
you open the end door. 

Being that it is just 3 doors, it could of cost only £990.00 but because there was
two pull out units and behind the largest door it needed that cladding, along with the repair to the floor and 
extending the floor into the space under the stairs, it ended up costing an extra day for taking out all the
existing and putting in the new floor, and another day for the cladding and in this particular case the stairs 
themselves needed some work doing to them. So it ended up costing £1990.00

This one below has 3 doors and 3 pull out units behind. This one included taking out
and disposing of what was already there. But it all went really well. This one only cost

This one below has 4 doors and 3 pull out units. This one cost 

This one below might of only cost £990.00 but cost more because of the
cladding behind the smaller door and because the other end where the big unit is
needed to have and end panel fixed and a top fitted in, and also this project
had an extra big unit and runner, so in the end it cost £1990.00 plus the cost
of the extra big runner, which turned out to be a little pricey. 

Design wise 

The first set of pictures show the units and door closing onto the
face of the stair string. Over lapping the string a bit. And in this case the
understairs area faced onto the living area.

The second set of images are showing the shortest of all the units. Fitted into
a victorian terrace house, with the units facing into the hallway.

The second from last set of images were the most doors all made to sit under
the string of the stairs. This was a semi detached house with the units opening
into the hallway.

The last set of images immediately above have some moulding on the edge of
the string, which the units and door sat just underneath. And the units were facing 
into the room.

All the depths range from 700mm deep upto 1100mm depth, but the 1100mm depth is
a little expensive. Over £400.00 just for the runners.

What ever next? This week I made and fitted some floating bracketless pine shelves. How does one make floating pine shelves I hear you ask? Well it is a little more difficult then ordinary floating shelves. However not too difficult if you have the tools. In the videos below I show the shelves in the work shop and after fitting them at Aaron's flat in Norwood. All 11 shelves were made danished oiled and fully fitted for less then £690.00

Here are some photos.

This is beautiful set of 8 bookcases made to look as one, would make anyone's home that special place to relax with a great book from your purpose made home library. Each bookcase section with lights cost £790.00 great value for money. This include drawings materials including lights transformers and painting and fitting. And no VAT. Hand made and fitted by time served fully qualified craftsmen of the highest calibre.

How can a radiator cover take so long and be so difficult? Well it was a real pleasure to make and fit this lovely radiator cover for Dr Kawa there in Romford Essex. Dr Kawa had to wait a while, but hopefully it was worth it?

With built in access to the thermostat and built in DVD shelves and a media section with a TV shelf above! Who could ask for more?

For the video of the same radiator cover, dvd storage come media center come TV cabinet, look no further than below.

Hi My name is Mark.
I make and fit alcove units and floating shelves.
I have a workshop in Bulphan, Essex, where I have spray painting facilities. You may be interested in off site pre manufacturing and painting and then to have everything fitted with the minimum of fuss. I love what I do. I have a blog and twitter facebook account along with a web site for you to see previous projects. I'm sure I can work within any budget, so you get great value for money, whilst still achieving a beautiful high quality lovingly made and expertly fitted furniture. I have a window starting in the next two weeks for my next project. Please feel free to get in contact.
Kind regards Mark

Hi Everyone, yet another floor, only this is an oak floor. Very tough! Although I brought what I thought was everything that I may need, and more. I almost ran out of sand paper, on a job, that couldn't wait another day.

But got it all done. Finished and helped move everything back into the room, yesterday morning.

Making and fitting an oak front door and frame.

Hello everyone, thanks for looking at my blog. A little while ago I made and fitted an oak front door and frame for a customer in Gidea Park, in Essex. It had sealed opaque glazed units along one side of the door as well as panels made in oak along the top and down the other side. The door was 70mm thick and was made from 1 inch solid oak planks stuck together, like with an aircraft wing, thus enabling me to get the thickness and the planks were stuck together with a biscuit machine and plenty of exterior glue. The height of the door was 7 feet too. It was quite difficult to pick up with two guys, once it was assembled. And here are the pictures of the job. Want to know more?

Here I've made some garage doors out of meranti wood, they look good don't they?

Here is another carpentry and joinery project I undertook with Ben for a customer in Woodford. It included stripping the front door of paint and sanding the hallway and making the back gate and the garage doors and fitting them and finally varnishing everything. However the floor has something tougher then just varnish. It was a special water based floor treatment recommended by surveyors in the pub industry. Want to know more?
