House Transformed for newlyweds

When Alan & Suzie recently got married and moved into Alan’s house, they decided to completely refurbish the property.

They started with the windows and I was happy to help by fitting White 50mm Wooden Venetians at all the main window plus a Faux Wood Venetian in the kitchen and a pretty Roller Blind in the bathroom.

What to fit at Bi-fold doors

Bi-fold doors are becoming more and more popular these days.  However sometimes it can be difficult to find the right Blinds, especially if the doors fold inwards.

The ideal solution is Perfect Fit Blinds, whether Pleated or as picture here, 25mm Venetians.  This enables the doors to fold back with the Blinds in place.

New Zealand Golf Challenge 2017 (NZ Part 2)

As part of visiting my son, Nick, in New Zealand, I was able to take his golf clubs out to him.  This enabled us to renew our family rivalry on the golf course.  We played 7 games in total, all in beautiful mid summer conditions (February in UK), on some top quality golf courses.

I started slowly and by the last week was 3-2 down with 2 to play.  The golf, by both of us, had been a mixture of brilliance and utter rubbish to that point, but with victory in Nick’s grasp, I found a very windy day, on a tough course, the time to find my true form.

I managed to shoot a gross 72 on a par 71 course to level the series.  The final game was the closest match of the lot and ended on the final green where I just missed a ten foot putt to lose by one hole and so give Nick overall victory 4-3.  I’d like to say I was being a good Dad and missed that putt on purpose, but those who know me, including Nick, know I really wanted that putt!  We now plan for the next challenge to take place in either Ireland or Scotland sometime during the summer of 2018.  I’d better start selling some Blinds and saving.  On that note if you would like a quote, or just some advice, give me a call or fill out the form on this web site and I will get back to you.

 

New Zealand 2017 (Part 3)

Having watched some cricket and played some golf with my son Nick, we set off on a mini road trip for a couple of days.

We took in the lakes at Rotorua and Taupo and experienced some of the most stunning scenery you could wish to see, anywhere in the world.  It really is a beautiful country with the most friendly people you could wish to meet.

Everywhere we went we found stunning mountains, beautiful countryside and spectacular waterfalls.  Amazingly I only experienced North Island.  Apparently the scenery in the South is even more spectacular.  Hopefully I can see that one day.  The main photo on this blog is of my base for my stay, the coastal holiday town of Mount Maunganui.

This was Nick’s home for the summer before spending his 2nd NZ winter in the ski resort of Queenstown, in South Island.

 

Month Off Down Under (Part 1)

Work wise I did nothing during February 2017.

Not ill, not lazy, but visiting my youngest son, Nick, in New Zealand. Truly a trip of a lifetime.

We started  and finished the month with trips to Eden Park, in Auckland, to watch the New Zealand  cricket team play firstly Australia and then South Africa.  Saw some great cricket and had 2 great days out.  Amazingly with today’s incredible technology, I was still able to book appointments for my return via email & text messaging.  I just spent half an hour each morning  catching up on phone calls & emails from the UK before setting off on that days adventure.  They’ll be more about my travels in future blogs, but remember if you would like a quote, or just some advice, just give me a call or fill out the form on this web site and I’ll get back to you.

Bowling Club Makeover

Marina Bowling Club, in Dawlish, will be looking bright and fresh for the new season after being redecorated recently.  The final touch being some Vertical Blinds and a Roller Blind, to the door, in Blue to match the paintwork.  They looked lovely and the club were very pleased with their choice.  If you would like a quote , or just some advice, please give me a call or fill out the form on this web site and I will get back to you.

Still competitive at 58

I may be getting on a bit in sporting terms, but I’m still managing to remain competitive as my recent 5th place in the Teignmouth 36 Hole Club Championship proves.  Hopefully I can juggle work and golf to remain successful in business as well as golf well into my later years.

Office refurb in Bovey Tracey

I was recently pleased to help Complete Property in their refurbishment of their Bovey Tracey Office.  I fitted 4 Blackout Roller Blinds to South facing windows to cut out the glare and also mange the temperature of the office.  If you would like any advice or a quote on sun and heat control fill out the form on this site and I will get back to you.

New Roller Blinds protecting history

I recently fitted 4 very large Blackout Roller Blinds in the library at Torquay Museum. The windows were covered by a mixture of old curtains and boards against the windows. They wanted to brighten up the look of the room, whilst protecting the old books from damage from sunlight.

This was done with 4 Rollers in Banlight fabric, which is available in many colours. If you need to blackout a room or just want a quote or some advice on any Blinds, give me a call or fill out the form on this website and I will get back to you.
