Work Completed April 2014
Work started in earnest on September 1st, 2013. Karol and his hardworking team from basement contractor "RoomBelow" had set up the site at the end of August so we arrived back from our holiday in Ireland to find an immaculate hoarded shed in our front garden complete with its own power, water, conveyor belt and tea making facilities.
By the end of September they had formed the front light well, re-routed the incorming gas and power and progressed nearly halfway under the ground floor slab, propping and underpinning as they went. (no treasure found)
The cutting of the slab to open up the void for the new stair was carried out on November 11th, 2013 and all structural work and waterproofing was completed by December 1st. This allowed us to instruct our carpenter, plumber, electrician, plasterer and painter to start work after Christmas. All fitout works were complete by April 2014 and as of April 2018 we have been using the space for nearly 4 years thus creating a modern 4 story vertical terrace house out of what was a 1960's two up two down town house when we purchased it back in 1998.
