This summer I had a call and was asked if I would work along side other tradespeople on an episode of ITV's Love Your Garden Your Home And Garden presented by Alan Titchmarsh and Katie Rushworth. I would love to thank Women Into Construction for recommending Decorella and thank Kunle Barker of Illustrious Homes for giving us the interior decorating job. It was a lovely project to work on and made even more wonderful at the end when we all got to meet the lovely family in person. A real honour.
First day nerves
It had been several years since I had done any site work where I had not know anyone. Walking up the path felt a lot like my first day of school. Once on site the fear was soon taken over with a healthy measure of panic at seeing the mammoth task ahead.The work was still very much in progress for all trades involved and many walls were still being plastered. If i had known I would of brought my hair dryer with me I thought.
The Builders were great. I needn't have worried about the first day nerves. Michael, Andy and Edgar of Wilmot Construction where a joy to work with and would often help me out espiaclly with a promise of a Percy Ingles peanut butter donut. Apprentice Joe and Electrician Kevin (the Seahorse) with his 200 multiple personalities could light up a room with his jokes but I was more grateful when he got the lights up and working. It was really nice to be a part of this extra Special project and lucky we all got on well as it was pretty crowded most of the time.
