Frithsden Construction

Berkhamsted – Refurbishment

Another example of a family who were very happy with the location and traditional style of their Victorian terraced home but were having to work with a small and dated kitchen/dining room – including 2 highchairs – of just 10m2!

Along with our architects, and consulting with planning, we added a large kitchen extension, bespoke oak units with copper detailing, a dining area for a large table and chairs (plus highchair space!) with feature glass rooflight above and bi-fold doors to the patio and garden.

We also removed an old awkwardly placed chimney breast, relocated the boiler away from inside one of the bedrooms to make a much improved nursery, and reconfigured a bathroom where only one person could move at any one time - installing a clever pea bath and shower area, removing the internal door and relocating off the hallway and redecorating throughout to make family bathtime considerably easier!

It was a pleasure working on this project with the family and seeing how even simple changes can make such a difference to everyday living. The children even missed their daily chats with "Bob the Builder" and the team once we had finished!

Client testimonial...

We have been delighted with the service we have received from Frithsden Construction.

Not only is the workmanship of very high quality, the real diffrence was how well the team communicated with us and each other, along with any external trades to ensure that everyone was up to date with what was going on with the project at any given time.

Julie is a great design project manager, and along with Ian and Brett – the company site managers – they glue everything together seamlessly.

Nothing was treated as too much trouble, and Frithsden were extremely flexible in terms of adapting to challenges as they inevitably arise during the build.

The team are all great people and a nice group to have around your home; which makes a big difference.

We are absolutely delighted with our new home, and I would highly recommed using Frithsden for your project!
