Building a den

A while ago we were asked to build something a little different at Renovate which used the small space in the eaves of a Victorian property to create a den for the owners children. Originally the job was to repair the roof, this came as an added extra, but it was something interesting and creative which we think deserves a little attention!

Whilst we repaired the roof we added some Velux windows to allow some light into the small dark space.

Adding proper insulation, dry lining and plastering was a little challenging for fully grown men working in an awkward space! Once the flooring was down and walls were painted it was transformed into a cosy, kids getaway…

A finishing touch was a ladder we made by recycling and refurbishing scaffold planks. A stairway to a secret escape…

We love something building something different at Renovate and we hope the clients enjoyed it too!
