Recent Pub Refit in Kennford

After refitting the Seven Stars in Kennford, near Exeter, landlord Adam got me in to add the finishing touches. As can be seen from the picture, I fitted 3 white Wooden Venetian Blinds in the front bay window, some Roller Blinds in the Pool & games room, an antique brass curtain pole as a divider between the pool room & eating area and finally some Vertical Blinds in Adams own accommodation, upstairs. Adam was very pleased and the place is looking really good, well worth a visit, if you’re passing.

Blinds For New Builds

I recently completed a job for a lady in Dawlish on a house she bought to rent out. It was a new build on the outskirts of the town and when I first went to measure it was still not much more than a shell. So there I was in hard hat, hi-vis jacket & wellies walking round muddy roads to get all my measuring done. It was all worth it though, as after a quote, then a few phone calls making sure the client would get exactly what she wanted, I got the go ahead.

The house is now ready for its new tenants, complete with Blackout Vertical Blinds in the bedrooms, Verticals in the hall, landing and cloakroom and satin steel curtain poles in the lounge and 3rd bedroom. I also fitted a couple of mirrors and some other fittings for the client to save her getting someone in specially just for a few small jobs. It only took me an extra half hour, but hopefully will get me some more recommendations.

Quality downtime makes me more productive

Making the most of my days off is a priority for me, as sets me up for the week ahead in a good frame of mind. I can then concentrate on giving my customers the best service possible through the week.
One of my favourite things to do is taking our dog, a Border Terrier called Izzy, on long walks. Favourite places to go are coastal walks, the moors, beach walks in winter time, but always there must be somewhere along the way for lunch and a pint. As my partner & I get older, I think the exercise of these long walks is as beneficial to us as the dog!

22 Blinds in Kingsbridge designer home

It’s really nice,sometimes, to be involved in a house from the start. I was recently asked to come up with some ideas and quote for a new build in Kingsbridge.


It is a beautiful family home with lots of windows, but most needed some type of covering/shading. After a couple of visits with the owners we finally fitted the following:- Blackout Vertical Blinds to all bedrooms, special effects 25mm Venetian Blinds to bathrooms, ensuites & cloakrooms, 25mm Venetians to the kitchen area and Vertical Blinds to the Dining room & Lounge, along with the side windows in the entrance hall and 1st floor landing area. The only windows not covered were the feature triangular topped windows at the front of the property, which as they were in the entrance & landing didn’t need covering, plus it was felt any covering would take away from there feature effect.

Sloping Vertical Blinds

Having a sloping window doesn’t mean that you can’t have a fully operational Blind on it. On a recent job in Ilsham Valley, Torquay, I had to fit 4 Sloping Vertical Blinds in one room. They all fully retract and tilt both ways. Due to the weight of the largest one, it required a heavy duty spring tensioner for the cord, to keep the Blind back when retracted. Fortunately, I had come across this before and so knew where to source the type of tensioner required.

Repairs, new blinds and a view to die for

One of my recent jobs was part of a large renovation of a big property, overlooking the River Dart, at Stoke Gabriel. At the start of the renovations I removed 14 Venetian Blinds, all to be cleaned, re strung and re fitted, when the house was finished. Added to this were a number of new Venetian Blinds and some Vertical Blinds. The renovations took a while, but now that they are finished, it is a stunning property, with panoramic views of the River Dart and surrounding countryside and of course some beautiful Blinds.

Golf… It’s only a game, right?

When not working my favourite activity is golf. I would say spending time with my partner, but she’d tell you I was lying. Then again I come behind the dog with her, so fair enough!
I first played golf on a family holiday in Newquay in 1971. I played with my Dad on day one, then borrowed his clubs to play several more times on that holiday on my own. That was it, I was hooked.

Now in my fifties, I’ve managed to maintain a 5 handicap for over 25 years, not too bad. I’ve always loved sport, playing football & cricket for many years, but golf will take me through to old age. The most precious times now on the golf course are the days spent playing with my two sons Matt & Nick. Matt plays for fun and gives me a good game with a shot a hole, but with Nick the competition is quite fierce. Before travelling around the world Nick was also playing with a handicap of 5 and our matches with each other are always do or die!

It’s a great game and definitely character building.

Football legend is my inspiration

What inspires me to be the way I am, ie; honest, trustworthy, friendly & professional at all times?

The answer is my Father, Malcolm Musgrove.

Taken from us in 2007, but still an inspiration to me,on a daily basis. He spent all his working life in the world of professional football, as a player, coach, manager & finally a physiotherapist. He was a speedy winger in the original West Ham “academy” of the 50’s, playing with the likes of Bobby Moore, Geoff Hurst, Martin Peters, John Bond & Ken Brown, to name just a few. He finished his career with 99 league & cup goals, still in the top ten West Ham all time scorers. He went on to coach & manage at Orient, Charlton, Aston Villa, Leicester, Man United, Torquay, Exeter, Plymouth & Shrewsbury as well as spells in the USA & Qatar. However, unlike a lot of today’s so called “superstars”, Dad was always polite, courteous & generous with supporters, always finding time to sign an autograph or have a chat, a true gent. In fact true gent is a term so many use when remembering him.

I like to think that I have inherited his ways and that is why I always have time for my customers. Obviously, my work is sales led, but I am always willing to discuss a customer’s requirements, whether or not it leads to a sale. Firstly it makes my day more enjoyable, but also you may want something in the future or recommend me to someone else. Whatever the reason, that’s just the way I am and I hope as customers it is appreciated.
