The Brief

Upgrading woodwork in your home can refresh not only the whole feel of the place but bring in new character and modernise aspects that may have slightly dated.

For this project based on the harbourside in the desirable town of Lymington, Hampshire, we were needed to replace all of the old interior woodwork including internal doors, freestanding and built-in furniture even skirtings, and architraves.

The clients wanted to put their own personal stamp on the property, in doing so making it a truly bespoke place to live.

Action taken

We started by carefully removing all of the old furniture and woodwork, it was a delicate process to preserve the surrounding areas of the home meaning the finishing and decoration tasks would be less time-consuming.

With the property stripped, we went on to designing the items of joinery and choosing various skirting and architrave samples. Alongside this, we worked with other details such as re-mouldings, built-in lighting, built-in air-conditioning access, and plumbing access.

As with all our projects we built as much as possible in our workshops and as we progressed each item, we invited the customers down to look and make any changes or add bits as we went along.

The built-in dressing rooms were made in the workshops but built on-site as we needed to modify walls and adjust the size of doorways to enable the layout the customers wanted to work.


Once the decorators had finished painting the entire interior of the home we fitted the handles and made final adjustments to all doors and drawers whilst also giving everything a final once over for ensuring a premium quality finish throughout.

Their current staircase was in great condition meaning we didn’t need to make any changes as of yet, although this is a project for further down the line. 

We loved working on this project and it was great to see the clients so happy with their newly renovated and updated family home.
