“ It was amazing, the building team were able to take my vision and make it happen. We only had basic drawings and they were so flexible and able to react to any changes we decided to make throughout the build.”


“It was extremely reassuring to us that we were able to visit existing L&E clients without anyone from L&E accompanying us. It’s rare to meet builders who are that confident in their work and this confidence was ultimately why we choose L&E,” reflects Ricardo.


The family decided to remain in the property for the duration of the build with the builders setting up a temporary kitchen for them. “The builders were fantastic with the children, such friendly, easy-going, approachable guys. They were also really good at cleaning up after themselves, which was important to us,” remembers Ricardo.


The project went incredibly smoothly with only minor hiccups, but any challenges were met with creative solutions and positivity. Although the Pollastris had a distinct idea of how the space would be configured they had only basic drawings. “It was amazing, the building team were able to take my vision and make it happen. We only had basic drawings and they were so flexible and able to react to any changes we decided to make throughout the build.” Communication is always key on any project of this magnitude and the L&E builders didn’t disappoint.


And it wasn’t only the building team that impressed Ricardo and Irina. “We liked the fact that L&E were very supportive and involved throughout the process. If we had hit any problems we were confident that they were on hand. They were in regular contact to see how everything was going and regularly sent people round to check progress,” explains Ricardo.


Ultimately, the project took a little longer than anticipated but the extra time ensured that every last detail was perfect. The wow factor has certainly been achieved in this stunning room, with the huge glass doors and the retention of the period ceiling. The meticulous attention- to-detail has fulfilled the creative vision of the Pollastris. “We had a good space to work with and the builders have done a phenomenal job for us,” smiles Ricardo. “We would absolutely recommend L&E to anyone else with a vision for their home.”
