New building project

This week Samuel Sheldon Ltd have carried on with existing building projects and took lots of new calls regarding quotes for new projects.

One project we are excited to start shortly is a conversion of a former library in Ulverston, Cumbria. This new project will consist of a new three-bed flat on the first floor of the building and a new bar/restaurant on the ground floor. This new project is a big project for Samuel Sheldon Ltd and is a chance to show the public of Cumbria the excellent work standards we can carry out.

Let’s look at the building projects in progress and how they are coming along.

We are still working on the three-storey house refurbishment in Coniston, Cumbria. The PVC windows are now ready to be fitted throughout the property. Once the plasterboarding is complete, the team will be getting ready to complete the kitchen and bathroom.

We are also completing the house refurbishment in Askam, Cumbria. This customer has chosen custom-made fittings and bespoke gas and electric boxes throughout the property. These jobs are ready to be completed this week.

We have a few small jobs currently being completed by a few team members. These consist of rendering a few houses around the Copeland areas and a garage base in Broughton.

The ongoing garages in Finch Street, Millom, are ready to have the back wall installed; we will provide more of an update once the work progresses.

Butler Street Update

Samuel Sheldon Ltd in Millom has been busy working on a building project in Butler Street, Millom. The building project has come along really well in the past 4 weeks alone. When the building project first started the superstructure was non-existent. This is now complete and is ready to be plastered and rendered on the outside. The roofing has now also been completed.
