This is the little beauty. It has three bedrooms upstairs, a downstairs bathroom and a small kitchen. We've decided to change the direction of the staircase, which would mean we could fit an extra room upstairs (bathroom) and then we could make the current bathroom into a dining room attached to the kitchen.
So, the current plan is:
1. Builder bricks up hall window.
2. Carpenter reverses direction of stairs and adds stud walls to make new upstairs room (also needs to level floor where current landing is)
3. Electrician rewires property.
4. Plumber adds central heating and pipes to new bathroom.
5. Get bathroom tiled and fitted upstairs.
6. Remove bathroom downstairs and for toilet and sink under new stairs.
7. Knock through old bathroom wall into kitchen.
8. Change position of kitchen door to make kitchen diner.
9. Tile floor in kitchen diner. (Or laminate).
10. Cover ceiling with board and plaster in kitchen diner.
11. Add new window in dining are and double glaze whole property.
12. Fit new kitchen
13. Add laminate in hall and lounge.
14. Decorate property.
A lot bigger job than we first thought! The agent said if we out it on as it is we would make more money (we got a bargain) and if we do the double glazing and central heating we'd make £20,000 (minus the cost of this). So when the work is done we should definitely make money, but having the cash to do it is the hard part. Better start phoning the relatives.....
Any thoughts or tips on the project?
