Back in June, we updated our piece from December 2018 (See Restoring a Family Home Destroyed by Fire) on Shuttington House, a property requiring renovation following extensive fire damage at the beginning of that same year.
The initial programme had a forecast completion date of September 2019. For several reasons, including additional demolition, replacement scaffolding and a change of sub-contractors, the works are still ongoing, and the handover of the property will not now take place until later this year.
That said, good progress has been made. The building and extensions are in place and watertight. Services are almost complete, and many areas are currently being decorated.
Aristocraft has installed the new kitchen and utility room, along with fitted wardrobes to the first and second floors. The fitting of tiling and sanitaryware is also complete.
The replacement secondary stair flights are installed, and the main staircase has been extended to a new second-floor landing. Also being installed is a new passenger lift.
The property is very close to completion and looks impressive – especially when compared to the photographs taken during the original property survey.
