I’m pleased to say that work has now started on our latest renovation project in Kensal Rise. The house has been split up into bedsits for the last 20 years and is in a sorry state.
The smell of nicotine in one room was so strong that you could last about 2 minutes in there before needing to escape for some fresh air! The landlord was delighted to tell me that the tenant spent most of his spare time holed up in there chain smoking and reading questionable magazines.
Taking the inside back to brick is giving thankfully allowing us to remove the smell (and the memories!).
The renovation will include a full width rear extension and a loft conversion. The house is Edwardian and has great proportions, so it’s exciting so be able to see how the vision will come together.
Some pictures here of the ‘before’. I can’t wait to be able to post the ‘after’!
