Ground floor refurbishment of a house – including adding a kitchen diner –
Selsey West Sussex

We moved to Selsey, West Sussex 12 months ago from Buckinghamshire with the intention of developing the house we purchased, over a period of time.

The project brief and progress
The house was a 1930’s detached property in need of updating. The ground floor needed a complete refurbishment including combining an existing sunroom, toilet and kitchen into a new kitchen and dining room with a relocated separate WC. All rooms were to have electric under floor heating and new stone tile floors fitted. There were several different floor levels, which would have to be overcome. Removal of the existing WC would also require knitting the new kitchen ceiling into the vaulted ceiling of the sunroom. All walls and ceilings were to be re-plastered. New French doors and windows were to be installed and then all rooms completely re-decorated.
Two new window openings would have to be created in the new WC and remodeled kitchen.
The soil stack serving the whole house needed replacing and several waste pipes relocating.
The 8m x 4m lounge was to be stripped, rewired and re plastered. Underfloor heating and wood flooring would have to end at the same height as the new kitchen/diner and through into the hallway and front room for Phase 2.
Our customers wished to have the latest available LED room stats and provision for HDMI and wifi cables at the time of the rewire.
The client was to remain living in the house whilst the refurb took place.

What our clients say
Having recently moved into the area we did not have any contacts and were nervous of using a builder for a fairly major project without recommendations. We were introduced to Chilltime Developments by a local electrician (Frost Electrical) who we had used and trusted. Chilltime Developments worked with us to not only achieve our budget but also to our time schedule. They took responsibility for the project, getting a clear idea of our requirements, budget, plans and in fact frequently helped us achieve cost savings for many high value items.

Would you recommend us?
We would have no hesitation in recommending Chilltime Developments for any building/re-fit project.

Why would you recommend us?
Not only are the Chilltime Developments team good reliable workers they are a pleasure to work with and strive to give project satisfaction and where possible show us means of saving money. We already have Chilltime Developments scheduled for the next stage of our project.

How are we different?
Care and attention to achieving exactly what the clients need whilst offering solid advice where savings can be made and a pleasure to work with.

What small thing impressed you?
This was a big project for us coming not long after a very bad experience of a similar project in our previous house. Chilltime Developments took all the hassle out of this but kept a constant awareness of our needs and our budget.

It’s the little things…
