Mr and Mrs Smith’s dream of having their very own Colt bungalow built for them was realised some thirty years ago after seeing one for the first time in Kent.
Our services were required in Worcestershire during the spring/summer months of 2017 to build a retirement bungalow in the pretty orchard garden to the rear of the Smith’s family home, in the picturesque village of Hanley Swan.
The superstructure was fabricated here in Kent and delivered to site by Colts. The cedar boarding, roof trusses, windows and doors were delivered separately by their respective suppliers, all erected and ready for roof covering in just four weeks!
Our team of three skilled tradesmen worked the long hours required to complete the bungalow in the agreed time scale.
We handed the bungalow over in June to Mr Smith, enabling him to engage his local contractors to complete the internal fittings, bathrooms, kitchen, internal doors, etc.
We returned at the beginning of September to complete the Texnap 22 oil treatment to the cedar, cleaning all windows, doors and guttering after the heavy August rainfall.
The results of our labour and attention to fine craftmanship has surpassed Mr and Mrs Smith’s dream of owning a Colt Bungalow.
We would like to wish them many happy years in their new home and look forward to returning to Hanley Swan soon to celebrate with them, this fine tradition of Colt House living.
