Project photos for the conversion of the five-bed HMO at Cecil Street, Walkden, Gtr. Manchester.
This project completed in November 2016.
First we remove the door casings, skirts, flooring etc. The void between these two rooms will be filled. This room, with the sofa, ended up being the kitchen.
Inital rip out
Same carried out upstairs.
Evidence of dry-rot
We came across dry rot during rip-out which had not been picked up during the survey. We are qualified to treat dry-rot and were able to deal with it. (The dry rot is the wispy dark material).
It’s easy enough to treat with the right chemicals but left untreated dry-rot can wreck masonry.
Repairs to outrigger
We removed most of the crumbling render from the outrigger at the rear of the property.

Still some touching up to do and new guttering to be fitted.
Making two bedrooms out of one
This property had a large front rooms so we were able to turn it into two bedrooms. The stud work has gone in (splitting the original window).

Old window has been removed and new openings created.
New lintels created and fitted for new windows.
New windows fitted
Fireboard used throughout to comply with building regulations. We arrange this on clients behalf.
