Q?

Is it worth getting a plan drawn out for my landscape design?

A.

Yes, a plan is a tangible, visual design document showing the overall layout of the garden and locations of plants and other landscape elements. A plan is a vital and necessary communication tool used to outline deliverables, leaving little room for ‘open interpretation’.

Q?

Is it true wet rooms only work in larger spaces?

A.

No, this is a myth spread by plumbers who prefer to install what they are familiar with, ie cubicles. Wetrooms work best in small British bathrooms as the space is not cluttered with bulky cubicles or baths (optional). By opting for wall hung basin (without a pedestal) or WC you will be amazed how the space is visually enhanced, the full floor area will be visible and liberated.

Q?

Can my loft be converted?

A.

Yes, many people who take a look into their loft think they have no way of using it as a room, because of all the ‘W’ shaped roof trusses that form the structure of the roof. We can remove these and construct steel or timber trusses which run the length of the loft and provide all the support necessary.
