Happy holidays from the GC House Team

18 December 2017

It is almost the end of 2017 and Christmas is near; we have made excellent progress with the house renovation projects this year. First off, with our success of finishing Porchester earlier this year, we have been motivated to carry on and keep improving. With our new house Elmbridge, plans are going forward and tasks are becoming complete. 

Since starting Elmbridge in September we have come a long way and will continue renovating in 2018. So far we have removed the kitchen units, removed a lathe and plaster ceiling, plaster boarded and skimmed a ceiling - thank you to Severnside Scaffolding for supplying the platform - removed all of the old carpets, have started to knock down the kitchen wall and are in progress of doing a full rewire of the house. These are only a few of the many tasks we have completed in Elmbridge and we are on time to finish as planned in June. 

We have some exciting plans coming together for students in September 2018, so keep an eye out for news.

We would like to thank all of our students who have taken part in our house renovations because we couldn’t have done it without you. Also we would like to thank Buildit, Screwfix, Nicks Timber, Alan Buckley, Rex Bishop and Severnside Scaffolding for your ongoing support and help.

Happy holidays and we'll be back in the New Year with more updates!
