Askam house refurbishment

This week Samuel Sheldon Ltd Millom have been focusing on a new building project in Askam. This is a full downstairs house refurbishment so it will be keeping us busy over the coming weeks. We are currently looking at how the business can move forward and we will be looking at expanding our work coverage area in the south of Cumbria, so look out for that bit of news over the next few months. At the moment we are still covering Millom and the Copeland areas which include but are not limited to, Eskdale, Haverigg, Ravenglass, Muncaster, Broughton in Furness, Barrow in Furness, Seascale, Askam, Bootle and Egremont.

Back to the house refurbishment in Askam, this building project had issues with damp downstairs so the first job was to damp proof the area and then complete new plastering and rendering. The property is also going to consist of a new kitchen refurbishment and a bathroom refurbishment. Once the refurbishment side of the building project has been completed, the next stage of the project will be to install a new boiler and pipework throughout the property. An oak staircase will also be fitted and we will produce bespoke oak furniture and an oak sliding door. This all comes under the joinery work that Samuel Sheldon Ltd carry out. We will also be carrying out the electrical work on the property and rewiring throughout downstairs.

We still have space available for new building projects or roofing services, you can contact us by phone on 01229 773295, on our Facebook page or by email at Our building contractors work to the highest of standards as well as closely following the health and safety regulations.

Wooden Beach Cabin project

We are back with our second weekly blog, we will be giving updates on the extension project from last weeks blog in the next few weeks. But first we would like to tell you about the building project in Silecroft that we started just before Christmas.

A private client came to us as they already had a beach cabin on Silecroft beach, and had just brought the plot of land next door for another wooden beach cabin to be built. Of course we were delighted to take on this project , and as you can see from the picture above, it steps down right on the seafront, you couldn’t ask for a better view!.

We started off by demolishing the old building that was already there, and as you can see the new structure has been built and we are ready to move onto the next phase of the building project.

This wooden beach cabin is going to be fully equipped with, decking, hot tub, kitchen, shower-room and a wood burning stove, lovely for those winter evenings. It will also be fully insulated, following all the correct guidelines.

We are hoping that this project will be finished by the end of June, so our customer will be able to enjoy the summer weather in their new Wooden Beach cabin.

If this is something you are thinking of having built, then please give our team a call today on 01229 773295 or visit our website, where you can find the details of all the building projects we cover.
