Our Extension Reaches Completion

After 4 months of living in a building site, our extension was finally completed, in time for Christmas.

What a transformation!

We’ve gone from a though lounge/diner and small kitchen to a decent sized lounge and a massive kitchen/dining/living space.  It’s been well worth all the upheaval and many thanks go to Nic Chapman and Son for their excellent work throughout the build.

Now to find the money to paint the outside, put down new lawn, garden furniture etc etc.  So to that end, if you would like a quote give me a call or fill out the form on this page and I will get back to your within 24 hours.

 

New Look For Retired Couple

A retired couple in Paignton wanted to do away with their tired looking net curtains.

They decided to upgrade to Verticals throughout their bungalow and were very pleased with the new look.  A change of type of window dressings can really transform a room, or even a whole house.

If you would like a quote, or just some advice, then give me a call or fill out the form on this page and I will get back to you within 24 hours.

New high in our heatwave summer!

I’ve been on holiday to various parts of the world, but rarely experience temperatures at the level we’ve had in our own country this summer.

The high for me, on The English Rivera, was 33 degrees in early July.

Thankfully we don’t get the humidity that some countries have, otherwise it would make work unbearable. Fortunately it is bearable, so if you would like a quote, or just some advice, then give me a ring or fill out the form on this page for a call back.

Lovely Summer, nice office!

One of the joys of the lovely summer we’ve been enjoying is being able to catch up on paperwork outside.

Sun umbrella up, lap top ready, cold drink to hand and work away.  If only it was like this every summer in England.

Same House, New Customer

Having been doing this for 30 years now, I often go back to customers I’ve seen before.  Sometimes at the same house or maybe when they’ve moved on.  I recently went back to a property I’d been to several times over the years, for two lovely ladies.

The property has now changed hands and I was pleased to fit Vertical Blinds, in the new conservatory for the new owners.  It was also good to see many of my Blinds still there and working well.  If you would like a quote or some information fill in the form on this page for a call back, or call me now.

 

Rare trip across the river.

These days I don’t cover the Dartmouth area, due to volume of work in my main catchment of Torbay, Totnes, Newton Abbot & Teignbridge.  However, an old customer from Dartmouth had a problem with a Roller Blind I fitted.

Basically the side control had malfunctioned after a couple of years.  Although out of guarantee I happily fitted a new one for free.  I also treated myself and the van to a trip over the upper ferry across the Dart.  If you would like a quote, or just some advice, then give me a ring or fill out the form on this page for a call back.

Wooden Venetians look great in bay windows

Wondering what to fit at the windows of your bay window.

Verticals & Venetians are equally practical, but for a classy look why not go for Wooden Venetians as seen in this job in Babbacombe.  Both the lounge and bedroom fitted with White Wood Venetians with 50mm slats, stunning!

If you would like a quote for your bay window, or just some advice, give me a ring or fill out the form on this page for a call back.

Finishing Touch To New Kitchen

Blinds are normally the last thing on the list when refurbishing.  Here I fitted two lovely roller blinds to a beautiful new kitchen in Upper Brixham.

If you would like a quote, or just some advice, on the finishing touch touches to your project, then give me a ring or fill out the form on this page for a call back.

Dave Musgrove Blinds to the rescue!

During the recent hot spell, 2 seagull chicks fell from next door’s roof.  After a couple of days of being dive bombed by the parents I went to investigate.  Unfortunately one of the chicks hadn’t survived, but one had.  It did however appear to have a damaged wing.

On calling the RSPCA I was advised to try and catch the chick and place in a box for collection, within 24 hours.  Not easy, with the constant dive bombing, with claws out, but I managed it, with the help of my partner and a golf umbrella.

The RSPCA duly collected the chick the following morning and after a couple of days the mother eventually went away.  As a Torbay resident, not a great fan of seagulls, but it’s hard to leave a young helpless chick to suffer and possibly be taken by a cat or other animal.
